Tallahassee, FL - The No. 12 Florida State women’s basketball team will close out its 2010-11 regular season Sunday at the Donald L. Tucker Center against Clemson.
Roughly 15 minutes before the 2 p.m. tip-off, seniors Courtney Ward and Christian Hunnicutt will be recognized for their wonderful careers with a ceremony at midcourt.
In addition to thanking the seniors, Sunday’s game is also a thank you to the fans. FSU head coach Sue Semrau has been distributing tickets throughout the community as a sign of appreciation for all the support this year.
Fans can still pick up free tickets at the FSU Athletics marketing office.
For the Seminoles (22-6, 10-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), the game against the Tigers (10-18, 3-10) is especially important because of conference tournament seeding factors and due to the fact that FSU is still in the hunt for at least a share of the regular-season conference title.
A Florida State win and losses by both Duke and Miami would earn the ’Noles a share of the crown for the third season in a row.
• If FSU beats Clemson, the Seminoles would have over 10 ACC wins in three consecutive seasons. That has never happened before in the history of women’s basketball at Florida State.
• The ’Noles are 6-7 in regular-season finales under head coach Sue Semrau’s direction.
• Florida State currently boasts 34 wins in the ACC since the 2008-09 season, which is tied with Duke for the most of any squad in the league.
• The Seminoles and Tigers met earlier this season in Clemson, SC. FSU won that ballgame, 83-73, and is now 17-24 all time in the series history between the two. FSU is 8-11 against Clemson when playing in Tallahassee.
• FSU’s final contest of the year is being called the “Thank You, Thank Them” game.
