"I'd like to see an NCAA tournament birth and I just hope they have a really good season," said fan Jordan Pandy.
"It's been so fun, they're doing really well and it looks like they're having fun too and that makes us have more fun," said another fan, Kelsey Grills.
The players started off with a three point contest, then a scrimmage.
To top off the night, you know it, was a dunk contest. Radio personality Joe Bullard and star Florida State football QB Jameis Winston were two of the judges.
During the competition, Winston got up to help out number 25 Aaron thomas - to throw a pass at him - with a football. The first attempt, wasn't quite successful, but the second one made the crowd go wild as they connected! Thomas received all "10s" won the contest.
