NCAA Tournament: Florida State receives second straight berth”

The University of Florida will have the highest seed of the three with the two ACC schools Florida State University and the University of Miami look to use low seeds to play the 2018 Cinderella role. Nonetheless, the Seminoles closed the season winning the games they were expected to win and added a home victory against then-No.11 Clemson, while losing on the road to NC State and Clemson which pushed them out of a bye in the ACC tournament. The Seminoles will face No. 8 Missouri in the first round on Friday in Nashville.

FSU was projected to be anywhere from a No. 8 to No. 12 seed by some news outlets in the last month, before finishing this season 4-6 in its last 10 games.

Florida, Florida State and Miami all qualified for the NCAA Tournament and will begin their march toward a championship later this week.

The Seminoles will be making their second straight trip to the NCAA Tournament and sixth appearance in 16 seasons under Leonard Hamilton.

The Seminoles placed 8th among 15 teams in the competitive ACC, and suffered an early exit to Louisville after their first game in the ACC tournament last week.

During Sunday's selection show on CBS, Florida State (20-11) learned it received a No. 9 seed in the West Region.

Season recap: With stars Dwayne Bacon and Jonathan Issac leaving the program for the National Basketball Association, the Seminoles took a step back from their 24-7 season that saw the team finish second in the ACC.

The Seminoles are led by junior Terance Mann, who is tops on the team in scoring (13.2 per game) and rebounding (5.7 per game).
