FSU Shocks Clemson With Buzzer-Beater
TALLAHASSEE, FL (AP) -- Michael Snaer's 3-point shot as time expired lifted Florida State to a come-from-behind 60-57 win over Clemson Thursday night.
It was Snaer's third game-winning 3-pointer in the past two seasons. He had game-winners last season at Duke and Virginia Tech.
Florida State's Devon Bookert drained a 3-point basket from near the top of the key to tie the game at 57 with 44 seconds left.
Clemson (10-8, 2-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) failed to get a shot off after Bookert's free throws and Florida State got the ball with eight seconds remaining.
Florida State (11-7, 3-2) was led by Kiel Turpin's career-high 16 points, all in the second half.
KJ McDaniels and Devin Booker led Clemson with 15 points each. McDaniels scored eight straight points to ignite a 16-0 run late in the first half that gave the Tigers a 29-16 lead on their way to a 29-21 halftime advantage.
