Veterans have to step up and lead. The Osceola's Tim Linafelt writes about that very fact.
Florida States veterans know they have to play better for the Seminoles to have a chance to end their losing streak and beat No. 5 Florida tonight.
The nation's No. 1 prospect, Andrew Wiggins, will be in the building.
No. 7 Florida isnt the only big-time visitor on the hardwood coming to FSU this week. The nation’s No. 1 basketball player, Andrew Wiggins, is coming to visit as well.
Florida's Erik Murphy cleared to play but will not start tonight versus Florida State.
I'm gonna need Somma that dogfish head 120 minute to survive this one.
Gonna be a bumpy ride tonight
Bout the best thing I'm hoping for is a successful AW recruitment so far as 2nite is concerned.
Still a good amount of seats left to be filled. Word is student section did sell out about 45 minutes ago.

Crowd still filling in. Going to be around 8K it appears. Disappointing, but not shocking after the Mercer game.
Nice little shot by Turpin, then he comes back with a solid defensive play at the other end.
Healthy amount of orange and blue in the stands ... but not a ton.
I believe we have our first "Andrew Wig-gins" chant of the evening.
Shot clock violation on FSU.
FSU playing tighter D so far, but a nice job by Boynton to draw a foul from Snaer while shooting the 3 with the shot clock expiring. Snaer makes the kind of mistake that a senior really shouldn't be making.
Internet is extra slow tonight. Apologies in advance.
The effort is there, just haven't produced good opportunities on the offensive end through the first few possessions.
Snaer has to be at his best for FSU to win this. Not there so far.
Murphy (hip pointer) in for his first action.
Bookert coming in for Brandon. 7-2 at the under 16.
