FSU men’s basketball schedule set

Florida State will open the ACC schedule at home against Georgia Tech on Dec. 15. The Seminoles are expected to play four non-conference games, including Florida, Indiana (on Dec. 9) and UCF.

The Seminoles will play an entertaining home schedule, including Indiana, Florida, Duke, North Carolina and Virginia. FSU will play 15 of its 25 games at the Donald L. Tucker Center, where it has won 62 games over the last four seasons (Gonzaga has the most in that span at 65 wins).

“We know that a lot of people worked hard on putting together schedules for all of the teams in the ACC,” FSU coach Leonard Hamilton said. “Our non-conference schedule is going to be challenging because we are playing good, well-coached teams while not having the opportunity to play any exhibition games. Once you get into conference play, the games are all difficult because the ACC is the greatest collection of teams in one conference in the history of college basketball.”

Game times and TV networks will be set at a later date.

FSU has been approved to allow a reduced number of patrons into the Tucker Center, which equates to just under 25 percent of the official listed capacity. Season tickets will not be sold for 2020-21, but priority will be given to existing basketball season ticket holders to buy individual game tickets on the Seminole Booster priority system.
