Florida State Seminoles

The Florida State Seminoles finished with a winning record last season but it wasn’t good enough for them to make the NCAA Tournament as they tied for 11th in the ACC and had to settle for playing in the NIT. The Seminoles will have to replace Malik Beasley who averaged 15.6 points per game last season and they will also have to replace Devon Bookert and Boris Bojanovsky.

Florida State has not made the NCAA Tournament since 2012 and they may have a tough time making it this season unless they get some of their young players to step up. The Seminoles do return leading scorer Dwayne Bacon who averaged 15.8 points per game last season. The Seminoles also return Xavier Rathan-Mayes who scored nearly 12 points per game last season.

How far the Seminoles go this year could be determined by Jonathan Isaac who is the highest rated prospect that Leonard Hamilton has ever brought in. He is a 6’11 forward who can do it all.

2016-2017 Florida State Seminoles Betting

The Seminoles were a poor bet last season against the spread but they should be better this season if all of the newcomers deliver.  If Isaac is really good and other players like Trent Forrest contribute then the Seminoles could be a threat in the ACC this season. The Seminoles also have some interesting players like Phil Cofer and Christ Koumadje who could see playing time this season.

Florida State Seminoles Picks

The Seminoles have plenty of talent but how often have we said that in the Leonard Hamilton era?  This team simply underperforms on a regular basis with Hamilton as head coach. It could be the same situation this season even with all of the talented players like Bacon and Isaac.  Florida State should do enough to finish around .500 in the ACC and challenge for an NCAA Tournament spot but it is hard to see them doing much more than that with Hamilton as their coach.
