4. Florida State Seminoles

No team has been more confusing than Florida State so far this NCAA Basketball. They won the Sunshine Slam Tournament during Feast Week, beating UNLV and a ranked Colorado team in overtime. However, they lost all three games since, including by 16 points to a bad South Florida team. By the way, they already have a 30-point blowout loss to Florida too.

Still, this team does have talent. VCU transfer Jamir Watkins has been the team's best player, leading them with 13.8 ppg and 6.4 rpg. Darin Green (12.8 ppg) is the other double-digit scorer, while the team has plenty of frontcourt depth.

But the issue has been the need for overall offensive firepower in the backcourt. Jalen Warley is a solid passer but has never been a real scoring threat, while La Salle Josh Nickelberry has not given them much. They do have an option now available in Primo Spears, who averaged 16.0 ppg and 5.3 apg last season at Georgetown.

The 6'3 ball-handler has never been shy about shooting the ball and there may be concerns about how he fits in this offense. But the past two weeks showed that the Seminoles need some kind of a boost in order to compete in the ACC and avoid back-to-back bad years.
