TALLAHASSEE, Florida — Leonard Hamilton‘s Florida State Seminoles men’s basketball team has a tough task ahead of them: follow up the team’s first Elite Eight run since 1993

The Seminoles, who finished 23-12 (9-9 ACC) and return seven of their 10 players who averaged more than 10 minutes per game during the 2017-18 season, begin the new campaign with a Nov. 6 matchup against Florida in Tallahassee (9 p.m., ESPN2).

After a stretch of nonconference play, the team opens Atlantic Coast Conference competition against Virginia at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 5, 2019, in Charlottesville, Virginia.
