The Florida State Seminoles will have a pretty tough non-conference schedule in the 2013-14 college basketball season. Let’s take a look at some of their notable games.

The Seminoles will partake in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. They will take on the VCU Rams first. VCU has the talent to be a top 10 team and will likely be the favorite in the Atlantic 10.

Florida State will also have to play Florida and Minnesota. The contest against Massachusetts will also not be easy.

The Gators are ranked No. 8 in the USA Today Coaches Poll and should have the talent to challenge the Kentucky Wildcats for an SEC title. Kentucky is ranked No. 1 and has an amazing recruiting class joining.

Minnesota will be losing some key players, but the top two leading scorers will be back.

Massachusetts will have the talent to compete in the A 10 and should have no problem finishing in the top five of the conference standings.

Florida State will be losing its best player in Michael Snaer. It finished with an overall record of 18-16 last season and an ACC record of 9-9. The Seminoles had high expectations entering last year and you could say that they disappointed quite a bit.

Who knows how the team will fair in the 2013-14 season, but the conference will play tougher than usual as a result of some Big East teams joining. Duke is ranked No. 4, Syracuse is ranked No. 7, North Carolina is ranked No. 11, Notre Dame is ranked No. 22 and Virginia is ranked No. 25.

The Seminoles will be challenged all season long to say the least.
