Grading The Seminoles
Just as scouts grade prospects using the 20-80 scouting scale, we use a 20-80 scale to evaluate teams in our top 25. A score of 50 in each category is average, relative to a typical NCAA tournament team; 55 is slightly above-average; 60 is above-average (plus); 70 is well above-average (plus-plus); 80 is top of the scale, historically strong. Accordingly, 45 is fringe-average or slightly below-average; 40 is below-average; 30 is well below-average; and 20 is the extreme in that direction.
FSU’s Drew Mendoza (Mandy Sorenson)
The Seminoles always hit, year after year after year, and they always use a disciplined, patient approach to rank among the national leaders in walk. That never changes, even when the personnel does. But FSU will be relying on more unproven newcomers in the lineup this year than usual, and it will certainly miss departed mainstays Cal Raleigh, Rhett Aplin and Jackson Lueck.
