TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – No. 14 Florida State has earned the fourth seed and a double-round bye in the 2019 Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament.

The Seminoles have won 12 of their last 13 games on their way to a school-record 13 wins in ACC play. 

Florida State (25-6, 13-5 ACC), which advanced to the Elite Eight last season, started the year just 1-4 against ACC teams.

The Seminoles join top-seeded Virginia (28-2, 16-2), No. 2 seed North Carolina (26-5, 16-2) and No. 3 seed Duke (26-5, 14-4) in earning a double bye in tournament play.

That means the Seminoles won't play again until Thursday's quarterfinal round.

Florida State won its lone ACC championship in 2012.
