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.

Emiah Bingley 35-7 So. G *
Gabrielle Bevillard 346-3 Fr. F
Brittany Brown 125-8 Fr. G
Lauren Coleman 326-0 Jr. F
Yashira Delgado 55-2 Sr. G
Natasha Howard 336-3 Sr. F
Kai James 06-5 Fr. C
Morgan Jones 16-2 So.G
Ivey Slaughter 236-1 Fr.F

* Eligible to play starting in January
