After some much-needed rest, the Florida State women’s basketball team returns to action Thursday.
The Seminoles (3-0) welcome in Jacksonville (1-1) for the fourth game of a five-game, season-opening homestand Thursday at 7 p.m. inside the Tucker Civic Center.
With a win, FSU would improve to 4-0 for the second straight year and the fourth time in the last seven years.
FSU has beaten JU all seven times they’ve faced off, most recently winning 82-50 last season in Tallahassee.
FSU had a hectic opening week which saw the Seminoles play three games over a six-day period.
After wins over Troy and North Florida to begin the season, the Seminoles defeated Florida 63-56 Sunday for their fifth straight home win and eighth in the last 10 games against the Gators.
JU blew out Webber International 73-39 in its season opener Nov. 7 and then lost 73-53 at No. 20 Texas A&M Sunday.
FSU freshman forward Valencia Myers was honored as the ACC’s first Rookie of the Week Monday.
Myers scored in double digits in each of FSU’s three games and had a double-double and an ACC-best five blocks in her debut against Troy.
She’s the first FSU player to begin her career with a double-double since Ivey Slaughter in 2013.
She averaged 13.3 points, 8.7 rebounds in her first three games as a Seminole.
Her 3.0 blocks per game are third-most in the ACC so far this season.
After the matchup with JU, FSU closes out its season-opening homestand against LSU Sunday at 2 p.m.
The Seminoles then travel to the Bahamas to compete in the Junkanoo Jam Thanksgiving week. FSU plays Eastern Kentucky Nov. 23 and then either West Virginia or Iowa on Nov. 24.
