TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — For the first time in 11 days, Seminole fans will get to see the Florida State women's basketball team hit the court in an Atlantic Coast Conference showdown with Virginia Tech, Thursday afternoon.
That time off has served a very important role for Florida State and despite having only played four total games all season long, the Noles have been taking that downtime to work on themselves.
Intense practices and a constantly changing schedule has left a much-needed void for some time off.
Coming out of their holiday break interim head coach Brooke Wyckoff feels the time off will only help this team as they gear up for the full gauntlet of ACC play.
“I think honestly even though we only played four games we had been practicing a lot. It’s still been a grind of sorts on their bodies physically and so to not only get that time with their families which mentally does so much for all of us and to disconnect mentally from basketball the physical rest was much needed as well," Wyckoff said in a Wednesday morning press conference. "Especially since we have a lot of players playing a lot of minutes. And so, it was a blessing in that regard and we’re all back and healthy and ready to go.”
Florida State and Virginia Tech tip-off Thursday at 12 p.m. in Blacksburg, Virginia.
