Florida State basketball is set to begin the 2021-22 season on November 10th against Penn. After finishing last season ranked 14th in the AP Poll, the Seminoles will start this season ranked #20.

The Seminoles will have many new faces on the court this season. Leonard Hamilton and co. brought in the eighth ranked recruiting class in the nation and the second ranked class in the ACC. The class included five-star SF Matthew Cleveland and four-stars Jalen Warley and John Butler. The ‘Noles also added UK-transfer Cam’Ron Fletcher and Houston-transfer Caleb Mills.

Anthony Polite returns as the team’s leading scorer from a season ago. Polite average 10.1 PPG and four rebounds per game last season. Malik Osborne, Rayquan Evans, and Tanor NGom are also back in Tallahassee.

Before the November 10th opener, you can see the Seminoles in action for two exhibitions. FSU will play Mississippi College on October 28th at 7:00 PM and Florida College on November 5th at 6:00 PM. Both exhibitions are at the Tucker Center.
