TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) — You couldn’t have asked for a better ending to the 2020 portion of the schedule if you’re interim head coach Brooke Wyckoff and the Florida State women’s basketball team.

A New Year's Eve win over Virginia Tech, Thursday afternoon brings the team’s overall record to 4-1.

As the Seminoles look to carry that momentum into the 2021 slate of their ACC conference schedule, Wyckoff will also bring her growing confidence as a head coach with her as well.

It wasn’t the ideal situation for anyone to be thrown into this offseason, but through five games as head coach, the former assistant is finding her groove commanding this talented roster. Who she also credits heavily with the easy transition, which has taken a load of stress off her shoulders.

After years of being alongside one of the best head coaches in all of college basketball in Sue Semrau. The lessons she’s learned so far have paid off immensely.

“Yea I hope I’m improving absolutely. I was saying that this group has made it so nice for this kind of transition for me because they’re a great group to coach. It’s been an interesting progression, I had no idea how I would be as a head coach," said Wyckoff. "Again I think it’s just the what would coach Sue do, thing for me. I watched her do it for so long, she’s done it so well and so I find myself just doing what she does.”

The Noles will come back to Tallahassee before hitting the road for a matchup with Wake Forest on Sunday at 1 p.m.
