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.

  4. Why the Lightning would consider trading Jonathan Drouin

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — This summer, the Lightning could trade one of its most dynamic young players ever.

    Tampa Bay Lightning left wing Jonathan Drouin (27) celebrates with his team on the bench after beating Chicago Blackhawks goalie Scott Darling (33) to score his second goal of the period and to tie the score at 4 to 4 during second period action at the Amalie Arena in Tampa Monday evening (03/27/17).
  5. Why the Lightning should keep Jonathan Drouin

    Lightning Strikes

    Keep him.

    Jonathan Drouin is live bait. The Lightning is ready to run the hook through him and cast him out there again. Drouin has enough talent for the Lightning to meet some defensive needs in a deal.

    Keep him.
