On Monday afternoon, Florida State basketball received some well-earned praise from pollsters, reentering the Associated Press Top 25. FSU is now the No. 16 team in the country.
Two weeks ago, Florida State walloped N.C. State Wolfpack 105-73 and took down North Carolina 82-75, both at home. But in a somewhat-weaker season for the ACC, FSU failed to gain any ground with the voters.
Not only has FSU won four straight games since an extended break, they have decisively won three of the past four by double digits.
Florida State was ranked No. 21 to start the year and remained in the polls the first 6 weeks, reaching as high as No. 15 at one point. The Noles fell to No. 25 after suffering their second loss of the season at Clemson, and were bounced from the rankings the next week.
