Snaer’s late 3 lifts FSU over Maryland 73-71
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Michael Snaer is making these last-second 3-pointers look routine.
Snaer made his second game-winning basket in a week, drilling a 3-pointer with 1.1 seconds remaining to lift Florida State to a 73-71 win over Maryland on Wednesday.
“I got a clean look tonight,” Snaer said. “I knew it was going in once it left my hand.”
It was the second last-gasp 3-pointer in seven days for Snaer, who also lifted the Seminoles to a 60-57 win on Jan. 24 when he banked in a 25-footer at the buzzer to beat Clemson.
He now has made four 3-pointers to win games in the past 13 months. He also had two buzzer-beating 3-pointers last season to give Florida State wins over Duke and Virginia Tech.
“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 Okaro White added 14 points for Florida State (12-8, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), which had lost three of its last four games.
Maryland’s Dez Wells scored 13 of his 19 points in the second half, shooting 8 of 12 from the floor. But the Terrapins fell short as Alex Len, who averages 13 points per game, scored a season-low four points.
Len had a chance to put Maryland ahead, going up and grabbing an alley-oop pass, but he could not put the ball in the basket with 13 seconds left. After Snaer’s basket, Wells had a desperation shot at the buzzer from near midcourt, but the shot was off.
The Terrapins (15-6, 3-5) have lost two straight, including Saturday’s 84-64 loss to Duke.
Maryland led 62-54 with 6:56 to go, but Florida State chipped away at the lead and tied the game at 66 on Ian Miller’s jumper with 2:32 left.
The Terrapins outrebounded Florida State 36-20 and shot 53 percent (15 of 28) in the second half but couldn’t overcome 16 turnovers.
