He helped the men’s basketball team win a prestigious Golden Torch Award at Florida State in 2017 for having the highest GPA among all men’s athletics teams at Florida State.

He enjoys his role as a student-athlete mentor for Florida State’s freshman in three years during his career.

He was named as a nominee for the 2018 NABC Give Back Team which recognizes players around the country for their community service efforts.

Mann is in his fourth season as one of the top players in the top conference for basketball in the nation. He earned All-ACC Honorable Mention honors, was named to the 2018 NCAA West Regional All-Tournament Team and to the 2017 Jamaica Classic All-Tournament Team as a junior as he enjoyed his best season as a Seminole. He has been a member of three postseason teams as he led Florida State to the NCAA Tournament in 2017 and 2018 and to the second round of the NIT in 2016. 

Mann has played in eight postseason games in the first three years of his career (six NCAA Tournament games and two in the NIT).
