Seminoles face Bulls in second round of Coaches vs. Cancer Tournament.
A season after winning the first ACC title in program history, the FSU men's basketball team begins its championship defense with an equal mixture of talented returnees and high-potential newcomers.
"Michael has been playing basketball for only a few years and is a dedicated, hard-working young man who has a very high basketball ceiling. While I don't want to place unrealistic expectations on Michael, he is right now physically talented enough to play in the ACC - he only needs time to develop his understanding of the game of basketball. He has the ability to be a good rebounder and has a very imposing presence in the paint with his 7-foot-8 wingspan. Coach Hamilton and his staff not only have a great history of identifying talented post players but they have the patience to help them develop over time. Florida State and Coach Hamilton's system are perfect fits for Michael and he will be a great addition to the Seminole program," said Tennessee Temple High school head coach Randy Lee.
