  • Promotion: Sunday’s game is Season Ticket Holder/Hoop Troop Appreciation Day.


  • Florida State (17-4, 6-2) looks to stay undefeated against Pittsburgh (7-11, 0-7), owning a 9-0 record in the all-time series.
  • FSU Head Coach Brooke Wyckoff goes head-to-head against Pittsburgh Head Coach Lance White for the second time, also doing so in a 67-53 home win as the Interim Head Coach on Dec. 20, 2020. The two enjoyed much success together on the same coaching staff at FSU from 2011-18, helping the Seminoles to six NCAA Tournament berths, three NCAA Sweet 16s and two NCAA Elite Eights in that span.
  • The Seminoles own an overall record of 17-4 this season, already matching last year’s win total when they went 17-14 overall.
  • FSU is coming off its largest comeback win of the season, rallying from 13 points down to defeat Virginia on the road, 77-68. The previous largest comeback win this year was when the Seminoles came back from 11 down to defeat Kent State on the road, 80-71.
  • Senior guard Sara Bejedi scored 12 of her 15 points in FSU’s critical fourth quarter at Virginia on Thursday. Bejedi’s 12 points all came consecutively in the final 4:16, turning a 63-62 FSU lead into a much more sizeable 75-66 lead with 46 seconds left.
  • Freshman guard Ta’Niya Latson became the fastest Seminole ever to reach 500 points in a season, crossing the mark in just her 21st game when she added 15 points at Virginia on Thursday. Latson is 210 points shy of breaking the single-season points record at FSU, which is 740 by all-time scoring leader Sue Galkantas in the 1981-82 season.
  • FSU is on pace to continue its prideful streak of consecutive 10-win seasons in ACC play (does not include COVID-19 shortened 2020-21 season). The Seminoles are four wins shy of earning double-digit ACC wins for the eighth consecutive year.
  • The Seminoles are 12-0 this season when out-rebounding opponents. FSU ranks 11th nationally in rebounds per game with 44.4.
  • Graduate guard Jazmine Massengill ranks ninth in the country with a 2.66 assist/turnover ratio. She has 77 assists to 29 turnovers.
  • Graduate forward Valencia Myers is closing in on FSU’s all-time career games played record. She enters Sunday’s game at 133 career games, which is sixth at FSU and six shy of surpassing Brittany Brown’s current record of 138 games played.
  • In FSU’s game-breaking run to finish off Virginia on Thursday, it ended the game on a 30-8 run.
  • Ta’Niya Latson ranks sixth in the country at 23.9 points per game. The next closest freshman is Texas Southern’s Micah Gray, who is 30th in the nation at 18.8 points per game.
  • FSU is scoring 20.7 percent of its points from the free throw line, its highest percentage since scoring 20.8 percent of its points from the charity stripe in 2011-12. FSU is third in the country averaging 17.9 free throw makes per game. Its current pace would end up surpassing the season record of 573 made free throws by the 1990-91 team.
  • FSU moved up three spots in the latest NET rankings to 16th after defeating UVA on the road. FSU owns five Top 50 wins so far, including two Top 25 wins vs. No. 13 NC State (home) and No. 19 UNC (road).
  • The Seminoles are 13-0 this season when they record 15 or more assists.
  • Makayla Timpson ranks in the Top 15 nationally in blocks (fifth), field goal percentage (15th) and rebounds (12th). Only Kansas’ Taiyanna Jackson joins her in ranking in the Top 15 in all three categories.
  • FSU is looking to start 7-2 in ACC play for the first time since 2018-19 (also started 7-2 that year).
  • FSU’s 137 total blocks this season puts it on pace to shatter the school record of 166 in 2006-07.
  • The Seminoles (up 6 spots) and Duke (up 6 spots) remain the biggest movers based on ACC predicted order of finish. Predicted ninth, FSU is currently tied for third in the ACC.

Florida State (17-4, 6-2 ACC) defeated Virginia (14-5, 3-5 ACC) by a 77-68 score tonight in Charlottesville, VA.

Men’s Basketball

If you listened to Michael Rogner and I on the podcast earlier this week, you heard us both predict a comfortable win for the Pittsburgh Panthers over FSU, as the Panthers have weapons to do two things FSU has struggled to defend all season—break teams down off the dribble and make a lot of threes.

We were wrong.

Instead, it was Florida State raining in threes from all over the court,...{continued *FOR FREE}

Annnnnnndddddd...........back to reality. FSU stinks. But the podcast dudes are back to bring the good news. Is the FSU basketball team terrible? Absolutely. But, not as terrible as they were in November, and it’s all about peaking in March, right? Right? Hello?...{continued *FOR FREE}

The Florida State Seminoles were in South Bend for an early week matchup against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

This is the second and final game of the season series between the two after the Seminoles escaped with a narrow win in Tallahassee about a month ago. After the best start of the season by the Noles, they closed the game with an 84-71 victory.

Player of the game: Matthew Cleveland secured his eighth-straight double-double, becoming the first Florida State Seminole to achieve that feat since Reggie Royals, 52 years ago. Cleveland tallied 14 points and 15 rebounds, notching 10 first-half boards.

The Noles started off steaming hot against the Fighting Irish, grabbing a 10-0 lead in the first four minutes of the game. It was by far their best start to a game this season, having a sense of urgency to share the ball on offense and carrying the necessary aggressiveness on defense to give them early opportunities....{continued *FOR FREE}

  • All-SEC defender Claire Rain decided to take her talents and don the garnet and gold, joining former Tennesee Volunteer Taylor Huff for 2023.

From her bio at

Started all 19 matches for the Vols.

Her 1,560 minutes played were second-most on the squad, and she logged 864 of a possible 900 minutes through Tennessee’s 10 regular-season SEC matches.

Stonewalled multiple Tiger scoring opportunities during the second half of Tennessee’s 1-0 victory at Auburn (10/20/22).

Produced several impressive individual defensive efforts to thwart multiple offensive threats by Florida (9/16/22) during the full 90 minutes she was on the pitch in Tennessee’s 2-1 SEC-opening road win over the Gators.

Served a beautiful ball to Taylor Huff in the 52nd minute of Tennessee’s home contest vs. #5 Duke (8/25/22), which Huff headed in to give Rain her first assist of the season.

It has been about two weeks since Florida State fell to North Carolina in the first national semifinal game. Therefore enough time has passed to allow us to evaluate the season a bit more dispassionately. We will also discuss the (very) early prospects for next season.

These are real questions posed by real people in the sense that they are actual questions (they end in a question mark) and I am a real person. I have written all of the questions....{continued *FOR FREE}

  • Baseball Posts Top GPA in Program History

Florida State’s baseball team accomplished a 3.11 team GPA in the fall of 2022, the best academic term in program history. Nineteen players achieved a 3.20 GPA or higher, with seven players reaching a 3.50 GPA for the semester.

“It’s always commendable when a team reaches marks never seen before in our program,” first-year head coach Link Jarrett said. “Time management, work ethic and execution are valuable traits in any walk of life. The vast majority of our players performed well, and honestly, we have better semesters on the horizon.

“Lauren Day’s transition taking the lead with our program was seamless. She did a fabulous job supporting our team while leading current and future players. Izzy Austin provided constant mentorship and guidance while Miguel Negron handled his leadership role in a very professional manner. I am proud and thankful for all of those that guided our student-athletes.”

Jarrett and the Seminoles open the 2023 regular season on Friday, February 17 at 5:00 p.m. against James Madison at Dick Howser Stadium

Men’s Tennis

  • The Florida State men’s tennis team moved up six spots to 10th in this week’s ITA Rankings released Wednesday after a 3-0 start to the dual-match season.

The Seminoles defeated No. 7 Georgia in the home opener on Jan. 15 after opening the season with a weekend sweep of Hawai’i and Cal in Honolulu. FSU is second among the six ACC teams in this week’s top-25, behind only top-ranked Virginia, and ahead of 14th-ranked Wake Forest, No. 18 North Carolina, No. 20 Duke and No. 21 NC State.

Florida State is led by junior Antoine Cornut-Chauvinc, who is the No. 12 singles player in the nation.

Youcef Rihane, ranked 24th nationally, is also 3-0 in singles play. Sophomore Jamie Connel, who is ranked 53rd in the country, is 2-0 with a win over the 21st-ranked player nationally against Georgia.

  • No. 16 FSU Sweeps ACC Weekly Awards

After its 5-2 win over No. 7 Georgia, the 16th-ranked Florida State men’s tennis team swept the ACC weekly honors announced Tuesday.

Antoine Cornut-Chauvinc is the conference’s Performer of the Week and Cornut-Chauvinc and Barnaby Smith are the Doubles Pair of the Week. Cornut-Chauvinc, who is ranked No. 12 nationally in singles play, defeated the No. 1 collegiate singles player in America with a 6-1, 7-5 victory over Ethan Quinn. Cornut-Chauvinc, a junior from Lyon, France, is off to a 3-0 start this season with all three wins coming over ranked opponents.

Cornut-Chauvinc and Smith manned the No. 1 doubles position and earned a 7-6 (3) win over Quinn and Trent Bryde, the 19th-ranked doubles duo in the country, to clinch the doubles point for FSU. After the Seminoles and Bulldogs split matches at No. 2 and No. 3 doubles, all attention turned to the crucial match at No. 1. Cornut-Chauvinc and Smith outlasted their opponent to give FSU a 1-0 lead on the way to the eventual team victory.

Florida State is back in action Saturday as it hosts FAU at 1 p.m. Admission to matches held at the Scott Speicher Memorial Tennis Center is free.

  • No. 16 Florida State Defeats No. 7 Georgia Again

The 16th-ranked Florida State men’s tennis team won its home opener and improved to 3-0 this season with a 5-2 victory over No. 7 University of Georgia on Sunday afternoon.

“Georgia has a great team,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “To beat them here is great for our program. This is two years in a row we’ve beaten them. We feel like we have a very good team, and we have a lot to prove here early in the year. We have lots of tough, high-ranked teams that we play but we did that by design. We’re thrilled to get this win. It was awesome having a huge crowd out here today, and I think people will want to come back and watch more of that.”

The Seminoles jumped out to a 1-0 lead by defeating both of Georgia’s nationally-ranked doubles pairs to claim the initial point. Maks Silagy and Joshua Dous-Karpenschif earned the first win with a 6-3 decision over No. 55 Britton Johnston and Blake Croyder at the No. 2 position. Georgia then evened doubles with a 6-3 win at No. 3 to set up the deciding contest at No. 1. Antoine Cornut-Chauvinc and Barnaby Smith finished off an exciting, 7-6 (3) victory over the 19th-ranked doubles pair in America, Ethan Quinn and Trent Bryde, and gave FSU the early lead.

Cornut-Chauvinc, the nation’s No. 12-ranked singles player, defeated Quinn, the country’s No. 1 singles player, 6-1, 7-5 at No. 1 to extend Florida State’s lead to 2-0. After Georgia claimed a straight-sets win at No. 2, FSU’s lead grew to 3-1 when 53rd-ranked Jamie Connel defeated No. 21 Croyder 6-4, 7-6 (7) at No. 5.

“Georgia is one of the best teams in the country, so this was a big goal for us and we are excited for it,” Cornut-Chauvinc said. “We all fought on the court. I’m pretty proud of the team. Last year, I was watching the guys and wanted to be on this court. It’s so nice not only for me but for the team to clinch the doubles point with Barnaby and seeing all the guys around, then I had a really good match with Ethan so I’m pretty happy.”

Georgia closed the gap to 3-2 with a win at No. 6 singles, but that was the final point for the Bulldogs. Youcef Rihane, the 24th-ranked singles player in the nation, earned a come-from-behind 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 win over No. 106 Bryde at No. 3 to clinch the team victory. Minutes later, Andreja Petrovic completed a 6-4, 7-6 (4) win over 70th-ranked Teodor Giusca at No. 4 for the final margin of victory.

“It’s always good to win at home, especially in our first match here in Tallahassee,” Rihane said. “I’m very excited and looking forward to what’s next.”

Florida State defeated Georgia for the second time in as many contests. The Seminoles knocked the 11th-seed Bulldogs out of the NCAA Tournament with a 4-3 win in Athens in the second round last season. Sunday’s match was the first time Georgia traveled to Tallahassee since 1975, and FSU improved to 11-7 all-time at home against the Bulldogs.

“I was really proud of Youcef; he was cramping a little bit in the third set but was able to finish it off,” Hultquist said. “There were a lot of ups and downs and we kept plugging away. Jamie had match point earlier in the set and came back and won the tiebreaker after being down three. I was proud of how we competed and played together as a team.”

Florida State returns to the Scott Speicher Memorial Tennis Center on Saturday when it hosts FAU at 1 p.m.

Women’s Tennis

  • FSU Opens Season With 6-1 Victory

The Florida State women’s tennis team defeated FGCU 6-1 to win its season opener Friday afternoon.

“It’s always great to start with a win,” head coach Jennifer Hyde said. “We hadn’t played in a few weeks since the fall season wound down, so we needed to get out and play some tennis. We got a good push today from FGCU. They did a great job of pushing us in a lot of spots, which was exactly what we needed, and we responded well. We have the first check in the win column under our belts.”

Florida State took an early 1-0 lead by sweeping the doubles point. Kianah Motosono and Ellie Schoppe had a dominating 6-0 victory at No. 2. Millie Bissett and Olympe Lancelot earned a 6-4 win at No. 3 and Anna Arkadianou and Vic Allen completed the sweep with a 6-3 final at No. 1.

Schoppe and Allen quickly extended the lead to 3-0 with straight-set wins at No. 5 and No. 4, respectively. Schoppe claimed a 6-0, 6-4 victory while Allen won 6-0, 7-5 to bring the Seminoles to the brink of clinching the match. Senior Mila Saric gained the deciding point with a 6-0, 7-6 (6) win at No. 2.

“I liked how we jumped out to three quick 6-0, really relentless first sets in singles,” Hyde said. “We were persistent, which was really good. That was nice to see. Getting the doubles point with some big leads was really important. We played some new partnerships trying to figure out our lineup, and it was nice to see all of them get a win today. It’s important right now to build confidence.”

Arkadianou extended the team’s lead with a 6-3, 7-5 win at No. 1. She was followed by redshirt sophomore Alice Amendola who claimed another win for the Noles by finishing off a 7-6 (4), 6-3 win at No. 6.
