The Florida State women’s basketball team will play a challenging home schedule that includes a December matchup against preseason No. 13 Michigan State.
FSU opens the season on Nov. 13 at home against Charleston Southern. The Seminoles will also play host to nine ACC opponents in Notre Dame, North Carolina, Miami, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Virginia and Boston College.
“I’m thrilled that our fans can enjoy an extra ACC home game as part of the league’s new 18-game schedule,” FSU coach Sue Semrau said. “Our fans will be able to watch an extra game from what is the best basketball conference in the country. Between what we have in store in non-conference and ACC action, the 2019-20 season is shaping up to be an entertaining one.”
All-America forward Kiah Gillespie headlines a group of three returning seniors that also include guards Nicki Ekhomu and Nausia Woolfolk. Gillespie became FSU’s 19th All-American a season ago when she averaged 16.2 points, 9.3 rebounds and nailed 53 3-pointers. She became the first Seminole to lead her team in points, rebounds and 3-point field goals.
The rest of the ACC schedule, including road opponents and game times, will be announced later in the summer.
