SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -- It's been a month since Syracuse coach Dino Babers delivered a stirring postgame locker room speech that went viral on social media after the most important victory of his first year with the Orange.

But since that upset win over then-No. 17 Virginia Tech, "Our house!" has become "Their house." Syracuse lost its next home game - 35-20 last week to North Carolina State to fall to 2-3 in the Carrier Dome. Now, the Orange have a chance to reclaim their house and send their seniors out with a victory when they close their home schedule on Saturday against No. 17 Florida State (7-3, 4-3 ACC, No. 17 CFP).

Florida State commit Jonathan Isaac of Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy is considering entering the NBA Draft this year, but it turns out he may not be eligible until 2017.

"Yes I am considering it," the 6-foot-10 forward told SNY.tv, confirming comments he initially made to SI.com. "I'm not 100 percent. I'm gathering information and will decide."

Since the one-and-done rule was adopted in 2005, no high school player has gone directly to the NBA.

Florida State's women's basketball team wrapped up final exams this week. Now the Seminoles face a doctoral thesis-like challenge: beating top-ranked Connecticut.

The No. 11 Seminoles square off against the Huskies Friday in the Hall of Fame Women's Showcase at Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut. It is the first national opportunity this season for the Seminoles so show if they are a legitimate national contender after reaching the Elite Eight for the second time in six seasons last year.

"We look at it as an opportunity to grow our program," coach Sue Semrau said. "But our measure is not just against UConn but the other top teams."

Although it is unlikely he will still be on the board with the No. 6 overall pick, Jameis Winston will make a pre-draft visit to Jets headquarters (Mehta, April 11).

General manager Mike Maccagnan, head coach Todd Bowles and offensive coordinator Chan Gailey were in attendance for Winston's pro-day held at Florida State University on March 31. The trio were so impressed by Winston's performance that they canceled their scheduled private?workout date a week later.

The Jets have informed Winston that his visit to Florham Park will include some classroom and film work to test his football acumen.
