FSU Seminoles beat Maryland Terrapins

TALLAHASSEE — Michael Snaer is making these last-second 3-pointers look routine.

The senior guard made his second winning basket in a week, hitting a 3-pointer with 1.1 seconds left to lift Florida State to a 73-71 win over Maryland on Wednesday.

"I got a clean look," Snaer said. "I knew it was going in once it left my hand."

Ian Miller dribbled into the lane, momentarily appearing he had lost possession. Defenders swarmed Miller, but he delivered a pass right to Snaer for the winner before 7,222 at the Tucker Center.

"Miller looked like he was tripping; we just kind of panicked and left Snaer wide open," Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said. "You knew he was going to make it."

It was the second last-gasp 3-pointer in seven days for Snaer, who also lifted the Seminoles to a 60-57 win Jan. 24 when he banked in a 25-footer at the buzzer to beat Clemson.

He has made four 3s to win games in the past 13 months. He also had two buzzer-beating 3-pointers last season in wins over Duke and Virginia Tech.

Wednesday's shot took place in front of coach Leonard Hamilton and the Seminoles' bench.

"I'm not real sure I had any thoughts in my mind other than, 'I sure hope that that ball falls in,' " Hamilton said.

Snaer had 19 points and former Clearwater High standout Okaro White 14 for FSU (12-8, 4-3 ACC), which had lost three of its past four.

Alex Len, who averages 13 points, scored a season-low four for the Terps (15-6, 3-5).
