March 3-6 ACC Tournament#

+ ACC-Big Ten Challenge

# Greensboro, N.C.

Coach: Sue Semrau (234-166 (excludes 22 wins vacated per NCAA sanctions), 14th season)

Last season: 29-6, 12-2 (tied for first in the ACC). Lost to Connecticut in the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament.

Notable: FSU has established itself as one of the nation's top programs. The Seminoles shared the regular-season title in the powerful ACC the past two years, has reached the NCAA Tournament for six consecutive seasons then, last year, advanced to the Elite Eight for the first time. The bar remains high. … Senior PG Courtney Ward (10.7 ppg, 5.7 apg, 64 3-pointers) is a potential All-America, junior C Cierra Bravard (7.1, 4.5 rpg) brings a physical presence inside and redshirt sophomore wing players Alexa Deluzio (8.3 ppg, 40 of 99 3-pointers) and Chasity Clayton (8.0 ppg, 5.3 rpg) both look to be blossoming, and they must considering that graduation claimed F Jacinta Monroe, the first Seminole to be taken in the first round of the WNBA draft, and Gs Alysha Harvin and Angel Gray. … Speaking of the newcomers, freshman F Natasha Howard, the highest-rated recruit in program history (second overall in the nation by ESPN's HoopGurlz), can score inside and from 3-point range and figures to be in the starting lineup. Keep an eye on fellow freshman G Olivia Bresnahan.

    Lightning Strikes

    While Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov grab the headlines, don't sleep on their linemate, Vladislav Namestnikov. Namestnikov is far from a third wheel, with eight points in eight games. "He might not have the names the other two have, but he's as pivotal and vital to that line as the others," coach Jon Cooper said.
