It was supposed to be a rebuilding season for the Seminoles after losing three starters from last year's NCAA tournament team to the National Basketball Association.

In 2011, Hamilton led the Seminoles to the Sweet 16, which is the farthest the program has advanced in the NCAA Tournament since 1993. FSU dropped three of its last four games, including a first-round exit at last week's ACC Tournament, but Leonard Hamilton's team did enough through the course of the season that they still made the field. 3 seed last season, Florida State fell in the second round. It marks the seventh time in school history the Seminoles will appear in consecutive NCAA Tournament with four of those seven times coming under Hamilton. That record includes a loss in their first ACC Tournament game against Louisville.
