It’s Friday, Florida State fans. As your day and work week come to an end, keep it here for the latest in FSU athletics. The news and notes section of this post will be updated throughout the day.

Lead Story

Florida State’s 2018-19 basketball season came to an end on Thursday night with a 72-58 loss to No. 1 seed Gonzaga in the Sweet 16. As disappointing as the loss was, the season overall for FSU was a record-breaking one.

Over the course of the campaign, the Seminoles set school records for total wins (29), ACC wins (13) and consecutive ACC wins (8). The class of 4-year seniors, which included forward Phil Cofer, center Christ Koumadje and slasher Terance Mann won more games than any other class in program history.

Over the course of this season, FSU defeated six teams who won or shared either the regular season or conference tournament title. The Seminoles defeated 12 teams that reached the NCAA Tournament.

In addition to those three aforementioned seniors, FSU will also have to replace guards David Nichols and P.J. Savoy. There is speculation that Mfiondu Kabengele could try his hand at the NBA. FSU will open the 2019-20 season at Pittsburgh on Nov. 6.
