As the college basketball regular season comes to a close, Florida State continues to sit comfortably among the top teams in the country. FSU dropped four spots in the Associated Press Top 25 and are now the No. 15 team in the nation. They are still the highest ranked team in the ACC.

ACC Tournament action begins on Tuesday afternoon, and while Florida State’s opponent is not yet known, they are locked into a 6:30 p.m. time slot Thursday evening on either ESPN or ESPN2. The winner of Duke and Boston College will play No. 7 seed Louisville on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. on ACC Network, with No. 2 seed FSU squaring off with the winner of that game.

Among other news, the ACC announced their all-conference and regular season awards, with three Seminoles receiving honors.

Ranked No. 21 to start the year, Florida State remained in the polls the first six weeks of the season, 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.

After four straight wins (and three by double-digit margins), they surged from unranked to No. 16 on Jan. 25. FSU has remained ranked ever since and have continued to rise further and further among the nation’s best.
