TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida State is heading back to the
NCAA tournament for a third straight year.
The Seminoles head to Chicago as a 10th seed to play a
seventh-seeded Texas A&M team that went 24-8 this season.
Florida State finished third in the Atlantic Coast Conference
with an 11-5 league record and takes a 21-10 overall record into
the NCAA tournament.
The Seminoles were bounced out of the tournament in the first
round in their two most recent appearances -- losing to Wisconsin in
2009 and last year to Gonzaga.
The Seminoles have been without their leading scorer and best
defender, Chris Singleton, the last month. Singleton broke his
right foot on Feb. 12 against Virginia. His availability for
Friday's game remains uncertain.
