2013-14 Florida State Seminoles women's basketball preview

Coach: Sue Semrau (295-201, 17th season at FSU)

Last season: 23-10, 11-7 (fourth in the ACC)

Notable: FSU returns just one starter and two reserves. And the roster will include just seven scholarship players until G Emiah Bingley (an Iowa State transfer) is eligible in January. But Semrau brought in two McDonald's All-Americans, 6-foot-5 freshman C Kai James and redshirt sophomore G/F Morgan Jones (a transfer from Northwestern who averaged 13.9 points and 6.0 rebounds as a freshman). The Seminoles will lean on senior F Natasha Howard, who averaged 12.7 points and 7.5 rebounds last season. Former Hillsborough Community College star Yashira Delgado has a chance to play significant minutes at point guard. She averaged 3.4 points and 3.3 assists as a junior last season. Still, it will be a tough road for FSU, which lost a combined 47 points per game in Leonor Rodriguez, Alexa Deluzio, Chelsea Davis and Morgan Toles.

  1. USF defense feeds on Temple offense to take NCAA interceptions lead


    TAMPA — Backed up in his end zone, Temple quarterback Logan Marchi scrambled, trying to elude a USF defensive end coming straight for him. Until then, Marchi hadn't had much luck hitting his receivers.

    South Florida Bulls safety Devin Abraham (20) sacks Temple Owls quarterback Logan Marchi (12) during the first half at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on Thursday, September 21, 2017.
  2. No. 21 USF Bulls roll over Temple to stay undefeated


    TAMPA — They emerged from Raymond James Stadium's southwest tunnel on the 11-month anniversary of their public humiliation at Temple.

    Bulls tailback Darius Tice, who rushes for 117 yards, is elated by his 47-yard run for a touchdown in the second quarter for a 10-0 lead.
  3. Fennelly: USF thrashes Temple to stay unbeaten; too bad not many saw it in person



    No. 21 USF ran its record to 4-0 Thursday night with some payback against Temple, a 43-7 trouncing, no contest, as if anyone cares, at least judging by the paltry crowd at Raymond James Stadium. Where was everybody?

    Bulls cornerback Deatrick Nichols (3) celebrates with teammates after making a defensive play during the first half.
  4. Former Ray Tim Beckham's over being traded, or is he?

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — As the Rays reunited Thursday with Tim Beckham for the first time since he was dealt July 31 to Baltimore, it became very clear that not everything in assessing the trade is as it appears.

    Tim Beckham, here in action Monday against the Red Sox, has hit .310, with 10 homers and 26 RBIs since going to the Orioles.

    The Rays still talk about having a shot to make the playoffs. But recognizing and correcting mistakes will help them next year, such as Mallex Smith trying to steal third in the first. "Those are the little things we've got to find how to eliminate real quick," manager Kevin Cash said.
