ACC Tournament 2005: Florida State


March 9, 2005, midnight | By Adith Sekaran | 15 years, 10 months ago


Team record: 12-18, 4-12 conference
Coach: Leonard Hamilton

The Florida State Seminoles are one of the two teams that have joined the ACC this season. The Seminoles are more of a football power and basketball is not supposed to be their primary sport. They were not a pleasant surprise like Miami, Florida State finished tied with Virginia with the worst record in the ACC at 4-12.

Strengths:
Nevertheless, the team is capable of pulling of an upset, as one of their four ACC victories came against third ranked Wake Forest. Their first round ACC tournament match will be against North Carolina State, whom they have beaten once already.

Coach Leonard Hamilton, well known in this area because of his stint with the Washington Wizards, has improved as a coach with the Seminoles and will look to lead them to success. However, until Florida State can recruit more talent, they will remain at the bottom of the ACC.

Weaknesses:
The team is not full of talent like the stronger ACC teams and has only one player averaging double digit scoring. Sophomore Von Wafer averages 13 points a game, not very high to be a team's leading scorer. Their best rebounder averages less than five rebounds a game.
