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. After offseason of work hard, play hard, DeSean Jackson ready to produce for Bucs


    TAMPA — There's no telling what DeSean Jackson will do once he gets a football in his hands. Perhaps that's why a camera crew followed his every move Wednesday while the Bucs' new $30 million receiver stood on a step of the hot tub that empties into a spacious, azure pool at his new, sprawling five-bedroom home in …

  2. Rays journal: Jake Odorizzi goes on 10-day DL with back strain

    ST. PETERSBURG — RHP Jake Odorizzi is hoping his struggles this season can be tied directly to the lower-back strain he has tried to pitch through since spring training. Toward that end, the Rays placed Odorizzi on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday retroactive to Tuesday.

    It is going to get interesting tonight when the Rays begin a four-game series against the Yankees in New York. The Rays feel they are good enough to win the East Division. These next four games and the four that follow in Houston will be a good measuring stick.
