Florida State Seminoles prospects
When this team is playing well, it is capable of beating anyone in the country on any given night. In fact, even Baylor and Gonzaga could turn in a solid performance and the Seminoles would still have a real chance in those matchups if they play at their highest level. The ‘Noles dropped to a No. 4 seed following some late-season struggles, but they find themselves in a manageable East Region. Michigan is the top seed, but it is likely without Isaiah Livers for the duration.
