Florida State Basketball had a historic 2019-20 season under head coach Leonard Hamilton. Here’s a review of a team that just seems to keep on getting better by the year.
Florida State Basketball was well on its way to great things following a stellar 2019-20 season. The Seminoles finished with a record of 26-5 and 16-4 in the ACC regular-season play to take home the regular-season title for the first time in school history.
The Seminoles finished the regular season as the No. 4 ranked team in the AP Poll after winning eight of their last 10 games. Heading into the ACC Tournament with all of the momentum, three players averaged double-figures scoring while the fourth-leading scorer is just the sixth man off the bench.
In addition to that, at least 10 players in Florida State’s rotation averaged at least 10 minutes per game this season and their depth showed down the stretch.
Florida State was well on their way to a deep run in the NCAA Tournament if not the ACC Tournament title had it not been for recent events related to the coronavirus that crowned them 2020 champions, either way.
Head coach Leonard Hamilton won the ACC Coach of the Year while two players made second-team All-ACC honors, one made All-Defensive team and one made the All-Freshman and took home Sixth Man of the Year as a result of their individual play.
Their No. 4 ranking in the AP Poll is their highest final ranking in school history, which isn’t bad considering they finished 16-0 at home in 2019-20. They put on quite a historic run together this past season, which has come to an unfortunate halt. Here’s a look at the season review of the Florida State Seminoles.
