The Florida State Seminoles are coming off of a very disappointing season and the 2013-14 college basketball season may not be any better. However, some talent will be retuning to the team, like Okaro White. It is now his time to lead the Seminoles to victory.
White had a breakout season last year, going from 7.7 points per game to 12.4 points per game. He will need to take another jump in the scoring department, since Michael Snaer will no longer be on the team.
White shot 51.1 percent from the field and 31.3 percent from behind the arc. The three-point shooting percentage may not seem that great, but White does stand at 6’8” and he did manage to make 25 threes last season. More work on that shot would do him wonders and would help make him a rising star in the ACC.
White also had 1.1 blocks per game and one steal per game.
Florida State is coming off of a season where it finished 18-16 overall and 9-9 in the conference. Sad, but true, that could be the case in the upcoming season. In fact, it could be even worse if players like White don’t emerge. Other players will have to step up too and the incoming freshmen will have to have an impact.
The ACC will be one of the toughest conferences to play in, thanks to a couple of Big East teams joining, which definitely does not help the Seminoles. Still, there are some positives on this team, like White returning for his senior year.
