With three NCAA Tournament appearances and two trips to the Sweet 16 under his belt, Chipley native Trent Forrest has left a lasting impression on Florida State’s men’s basketball program. This past week, he put himself in elite company.

In Saturday’s 85-84 win over Notre Dame, Forrest became the second FSU player in as many seasons to hit 1,000 points for his career and the 48th in program history. That same night, Forrest put himself in even more of an elite category.

With 13 points, five rebounds, seven assists and four steals in the victory over the Fighting Irish, Forrest joined FSU great Bob Sura as the only players in program history with 1,000 career points, 500 career rebounds, 400 career assists and 200 career steals. A 6-foot-5 guard, Sura was a 4-year starter for the Seminoles from 1991 to 1995.

Still the program’s all-time leading scorer, Sura ranks in the top 15 all-time at FSU in each of the four aforementioned category. Sura ranks 13th all-time in FSU in career rebounds, sixth in assists and third in steals.

With still 11 games remaining in the regular season, Forrest has time to work his way up the all-time charts for the Seminoles. For four seasons, Forrest has been an integral part of a team that looks on its way to a fourth straight NCAA Tournament. The only other players to play in four straight NCAA Tournaments for the Seminoles are Deividas Dulkys, Xavier Gibson and Luke Loucks.

After his playing career at FSU concluded, Sura spent 10 years in the NBA with five different teams. Forrest also hopes to have a long hoops career once his days in Tallahassee have passed. Another fun fact about Sura and Forrest’s time in Tallahassee? Both wore No. 3.
