1993  American Women's Sports Foundation - 2nd Team All-American
Elected into the FSU Hall of Fame in 1999
The Florida State women's basketball program enjoyed its greatest success during the four-year career of Tia Paschal, who lettered for the Seminoles from 1989 to 1993.

A forward from Thomson, GA., Paschal was a three-year starter for the Seminoles who made an immediate impact averaging 20 minutes of play as a rookie. She averaged 19.4 points and 7.4 rebounds as a senior earning first team All-ACC honors and second team All-America by the American Women's Sports Federation. Over her career, she helped lead the Seminoles to two consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances in 1989-90 and 1990-91 as well as a Metro Conference championship in the 1990-91 season.

Paschal's versatility made her a weapon in every facet of the game which is evident by the records she still held at FSU five years after her playing days. At the time of her induction, Paschal held the records for points in a game (38), free throws made (14) and attempted (19) in a game, as well as steals in a season (96) and career (269). Paschal was also among FSU's top 10 in six season and seven career records and ranked second all-time in scoring with 1,662 points.

Honors came in abundance for Paschal throughout her career. Paschal took the conference by storm as a freshman in 1989-90, earning Metro Conference All-Rookie Team honors. She earned Metro All-Tournament Team honors twice and was a two-time conference Player of the Week.

Paschal played professionally in Europe following her graduation with a criminology degree in 1993. She played for teams in Germany, Sweden and Spain in addition to playing for the Charlotte Sting of the WNBA in 1998.
