Seminole Women's Hoops Hosts Jacksonville

The Florida State Women’s Basketball team looks to wrap up its non-conference portion of the regular-season schedule on a strong note when it hosts Jacksonville on “Holiday 2-for-1 Day" on Monday night at 7 p.m. at the Donald L. Tucker Center.

FSU leads Jacksonville 3-0 all-time and faces the Dolphins (3-7) for the second consecutive season. Last year on Dec. 8, 2013, the Noles (12-1) defeated JU 71-33 and got 15 points and three 3-pointers from current redshirt junior guard Morgan Jones.

The Seminoles carry two impressive win streaks into Monday night’s matchup. The Noles are riding an eight-game win streak that is the longest in the ACC. Also, FSU has won 21 consecutive non-conference matchups at home, with its last loss coming on Nov. 27, 2011, to Nebraska (lost 66-63).

FSU continues to own the Sunshine State - since the start of the 2012-13 season, the Noles are 14-1 against teams from the state of Florida. This year, FSU is 3-0 against Florida-based opponents, defeating Bethune-Cookman (103-34), Florida (77-51) and North Florida (79-58).

Monday night’s game against Jacksonville marks the season debut of talented sophomore guard Leticia Romero. The Las Palmas, Spain, native gained immediate eligibility by the NCAA on Dec. 23 after transferring this summer from Kansas State. As a freshman last year, Romero averaged 14.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and five assists with KSU.

Florida State’s current eight-game win streak is tied for the ninth-longest in program history. Under head coach Sue Semrau, FSU has won eight or more games in a row six different times, including the school-record 12-game win streak in the 2004-05 season.

Florida State is receiving a season-best 34 votes in the USA Today Coaches Poll, essentially sitting 26th in the national rankings. A spot in the Top 25 this season would mean FSU has appeared in the national rankings for a ninth consecutive year.
