The 2019-20 campaign was an exciting season for FSU basketball that ended prematurely because of COVID-19. Still, here are four takeaways.
The FSU basketball season started with a dud in the loss against Pittsburgh, little did we know the season this team would have after that performance.
To say FSU fans would have never imagined this team as a legit national title contender at that time would be an understatement.
Here we are, just a few days removed from being crowned ACC Tournament Champions without playing a game, and the NCAA Tournament being canceled.
The crazy thing is the Noles were on the floor warming up to play Clemson when the call was made to cancel the ACC Tournament.
Those cancellations meant the end of the college careers of seniors Trent Forrest and Dominick Olejniczak.

I think everyone understands the move to cancel the tournaments in hindsight, as it’s bigger than basketball. I suppose the one argument to be made is why not suspend the NCAA Tournament instead of outright cancel it so quickly?
It’s unfortunate FSU basketball fans will not get to see how this season would play out as they had a legitimate shot at winning a national title.
A shot to see Trent Forrest in the garnet and gold a few more times would have been ideal. With that being said, here are four takeaways from the 2019-20 season.
