Florida State basketball appears to have found a missing piece for next season. Jeff Peterson, who's described as a pure point guard, is transfering from Arkansas. But the 6-footer will be a senior, which means one and done.
FSU will be Peterson's third team and school. He averaged 10.6 points and 4.2 assists as a sophomore at Iowa. At Arkansas last year he averaged 6.3 points and 2.4 assists in 23 starts.
Here's what Nole Hoops savant Bill from Tampa has to say about Peterson:
It was a necessity for the team to pick up an experienced point guard. Leonard Hamilton was faced with going into next season with Luke Loucks as the only player with significant playing time at that position. With Jeff Peterson having just one year of eligibility and Loucks a senior as well, obviously it is a short term fix to a problem Hamilton will have to somehow address for the 2012-2013 season. Ian Miller was thought to be that solution but with the addition of Peterson, Miller, as was the case last season, quite possibly will not see significant minutes learning that position in the 2011-2012 campaign.
