Florida State basketball is off to a hot start in the 2020-21 season, with a 3-0 record and two non-conference victories over power five teams. After last week’s wins over the Indiana Hoosiers and Florida Gators, FSU is up to #15 in the AP Poll, as the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (2-2) come to Tallahassee to open up ACC play.
