Seminoles Edge Terps in Final Seconds, 73-71
Jan. 30, 2013
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Michael Snaer made a 3-pointer with 1.1 seconds left to lift Florida State to a 73-71 win over Maryland on Wednesday.
It was the second last-gasp 3-pointer in seven days for Snaer, who also lifted the Seminoles to a 60-57 win when he banked in a 25-footer at the buzzer to beat Clemson. Snaer also had two buzzer-beating 3-pointers last season to give Florida State wins over Duke and Virginia Tech.
Snaer had 19 points and Okaro White added 14 points for Florida State (12-8, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference).
The Terps led 62-54 after a dunk by Len - his first points of the game - with 6:56 left. But Florida State went on a 6-0 run and Ian Miller tied it at 66 on a jumper with 2:32 left.
Wells scored Maryland's final five points, knocking down a 3-pointer and then a long two to give Maryland a 71-68 lead with 1:30 left. But after a Wells steal, Nick Faust missed the front end of a one-and-one, and Len failed to convert an alley-oop from Faust with 13 seconds left.
Snaer then knocked down the game-winning shot from the corner with 1.1 seconds left, and Wells' desperation 25-footer just before the buzzer missed.
Maryland outrebounded Florida State 36-20.
