TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The No. 12 Florida State women’s basketball team hosts No. 17 Maryland this Sunday at 3 p.m. in a game that will air live on ESPN2.
The Seminoles (21-5, 9-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) are coming off a win at Wake Forest while the Terrapins (21-5, 7-4) are on the heels of a victory over Duke.
By taking down the Blue Devils, Maryland helped push FSU to the top of the ACC standings. Florida State, Duke and Miami now all have just two conference losses.
Sunday is youth day so any adult ticket purchase comes with a free children's ticket.
Kids in attendance will also have a chance to participate in promotions and win prizes throughout the ballgame.
Following Sunday's game, FSU travels to play at Miami before returning home for Feb. 27's home finale against Clemson. That contest will serve as Senior Day and the program will honor fourth-year players Courtney Ward and Christian Hunnicutt.
In addition to thanking the Seminole seniors for their hard work over the years, the women's basketball program will thank the devoted fans.
Dubbed the "Thank You, Thank Them" game, Semrau will be out in the community next week distributing free tickets for all those that wish to come celebrate. Seminoles.com will have more information on the final home game early next week.
