How they got there was due in large part to their consistency. Speaking of which, FSU would've been making their 4th consecutive NCAA appearance, which would be a school record for a program that also won its first regular season conference championship since 1989, when they were part of the Metropolitan Collegiate Athletic Conference. The Seminoles only faced defeat 5 times this season, though of those 5, only one came to a team that was ranked at the time of the game (Duke, as Virginia would later be ranked). Still, this is also one of the more consistent scoring teams in the field, led by future NBA draft pick Devin Vassell (12.7 ppg) and veteran guard Trent Forrest (11.6 ppg). With the right matchups, this Florida State team had the talent to reach their first Final Four since 1972. Winthrop checks in as the 3rd-highest scoring team in the field, and among teams that most likely would've qualified for the NCAA Tournament. Despite just three players averaging double figures, with the best being Hunter Hale at 13.9 ppg, the Big South double-champ Eagles put up 81.3 ppg, good for 5th nationally. The trade-off for great offense is, of course, points allowed on defense, as the Eagles surrender 71.5 ppg, which is good for 5th in their own conference.
