MID-SEASON HONORS

BOSTON, MA -- Florida State's Leonard Hamilton earns Jim Phelan award mid-season coaching honors.

Picked to finish 8th in the ACC, the Seminoles closed out the calendar year at 14-1, which matches the best 15-game start in school history and the best under Hamilton.

With wins over Florida (# 21), George Washington, Illinois, Minnesota Temple and Virginia (#12); Florida State has climbed to No. 12 in the rankings. That’s the highest in-season ranking since the 1992-93 season, when it was ranked as high as No. 7 in the nation. FSU finished in second place in the ACC and advanced to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament. 

The Seminoles 11-game winning streak ties the school record for consecutive wins and is only the second 11-game winning streak in school history. 

The Jim Phelan award is presented annually to the top coach in division I men's basketball. Phelan led the Mountaineers to the 1962 NCAA Men's Division II Basketball Championship. When he retired in 2003, after coaching for 49 years, he had amassed 830 wins (overall record of 830-524) in all divisions. In those 49 years, 19 of his teams amassed 20 or more wins in a season.

The recipient of the 2017 Phelan award will be announced at the CollegeInsider.com Awards Banquet on March 31 in Phoenix, AZ site of the men’s NCAA Division I Basketball Championship.
