Florida State holds on to beat Clemson 73-69

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Florida State used Michael Snaer's free throws in the last 25 seconds of the game to secure the win over Clemson in the first round of the ACC Tournament on Thursday night.

In a game of runs that were sparked by free throws and stalling offenses, Florida State rode late regular season momentum to beat Clemson 73-69 in the first round of the ACC Tournament on Thursday night.

Down 30-35 at halftime, Florida State limited Clemson to just one field goal in eight minutes to open the second half, and Florida State's Okaro White scored eight consecutive points during that stretch as a part of his career-high 24 points on the night.

With Florida State leading 65-51, Clemson used a 15-4 run to pull within three, 66-69. At that point, senior and regular season leading scorer for the Seminoles Michael Snaer knocked down four free throws in the final 25 seconds to seal the win.

Florida State's Terrance Shannon scored 12 points off the bench, his highest total since returning from a neck injury suffered in January, and guards Devon Bookert and Montay Brandon scored 12 and 8 respectively.

Tomorrow, a rematch of last year's ACC Tournament championship game will occur when Florida State plays North Carolina at 9:30 p.m. in the second round of the ACC Tournament.
