The Florida State Seminoles are expected to return to the court on Saturday, February 13th when they host the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Florida State has seen multiple games postponed due to COVID-19 protocols.

Florida State (10-3, 6-2 ACC) hasn’t played since January 30th, a 76-65 road loss to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. The Seminoles returned to practice on Wednesday and are expected to be at full health, though it remains to be seen whether junior guard Anthony Polite will return to the lineup. He hasn’t played since January 16th with a shoulder injury. The Seminoles come in at No. 16 in the latest adjusted offensive efficiency ratings.

Wake Forest (6-8, 3-8 ACC) has gotten out of a slump where the Demon Deacons lost each of their first six games to start 2021. Since then, Wake Forest is 3-2 in their last five including a 69-65 road win over the Boston College Eagles on Wednesday night. Ian Dubose played in his first game since late November and added 17 points off the bench to lead the team. The Demon Deacons are not inside the top 100 in either adjusted offensive and defensive efficiency.
