TALLAHASSEE, Fl. - WTXL — It’s no secret that Florida State men’s basketball head coach Leonard Hamilton isn’t afraid to dive deep into his bench. Keeping fresh legs on the court to match his up-tempo play-style has been a staple in his program.

The Noles will host ACC conference foe Georgia Tech tonight at the Tucker Center, looking to improve their undefeated record to 4-0. And as the season progresses Hamilton made note that his philosophy of keeping a deep rotation off the bench will be crucial to the success of his team.

“Most of the time, most players who play at our level they’re the best player on their high school team or junior college team. So they get all the touches, they play extended minutes," Hamilton said. "It’s almost virtually impossible to give maximum effort offensively and defensively for long periods of time on the court without getting fatigued.”

FSU and Georgia Tech tip-off tonight at 8:30 p.m. from the Donald L. Tucker Center.
