No. 15 Florida State basketball faces off with in-state opponent UCF tonight. The Knights enter the game 1-1, while the Seminoles are looking to move to 5-0 for the third time in the last four seasons.
The Seminoles will look to make it 32 straight wins in games played in the state of Florida, as the ‘Noles haven’t lost an in-state game since January of 2019. Wyatt Wilkes said, “We take pride in our state. This is our state. Whenever we go on the court to play, it matters. Each one of our games is as important as any other and that is part of the mentality of our team. Treating each game the same is part of our culture.”
Florida State will wear their special N7 Turquoise uniforms tonight. The Seminoles are 13-2 in the uniforms.
