FSU women's basketball preview

Florida State women

Coach: Sue Semrau (179-152, 12th season)

Last season: 19-14 (7-7 in the ACC, tied for fifth). Reached second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Notable: The Seminoles, looking for an unprecedented fifth straight NCAA Tournament berth, have four starters back. That group includes their top three scorers, Tanae Davis-Cain (15.0 ppg, 4.6 rpg), Mara Freshour (12.7 ppg, 5.0 rpg) and Jacinta Monroe (10.2 ppg, 6.2 rpg). In all, they return 83 percent of their scoring and 89 percent of their rebounding. … A key will be how well sophomore Courtney Ward takes over for Shante Williams at PG. … Heralded freshman C Cierra Bravard is expected to start immediately.
