TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Aaron Thomas led Florida State in scoring last season as a sophomore. But after losing two seniors, the Seminoles are now looking for Thomas to also be a leader.
A versatile 6-foot-5 guard, Thomas has shown the ability to drive to the basket and consistently knock down jump shots. Though he came off the bench until mid-January last season, Thomas averaged a team-leading 14.5 points per game. He had six 20-point games in his 16 starts down the stretch.
"I'm always challenging him to constantly try to become the most complete player that he can become," FSU coach Leonard Hamilton said. "I want him to use all his skills offensively and defensively. Sometimes when you're a freshman you're just kind of feeling your way, trying to learn the system, how to utilize your skills.
