Florida State announced its 2011-12 basketballs schedule, featuring home games against Duke, North Carolina and Princeton.
The Seminoles, who advanced to last year's Sweet 16, will face at least eight and possibly as many as 10 NCAA tourney teams from last year.
"We think this is a schedule that will more than help us prepare for conference play in January," Seminoles coach Leonard Hamilton said in a statement. "We have got some tough games on the road with the Battle4Atlantis Tournament — a tournament that includes defending national champion Connecticut as well as playing at Michigan State and at Florida."
