Virginia Tech Vs. Florida State Recap: Michael Snaer Hits Game-Winning Three Pointer To Avoid Upset

The Florida State Seminoles snatched victory from the jaws of defeat on Thursday night, coming back in the final minute to defeat Virginia Tech 48-47 on a game-winning three-pointer by Michael Snaer. The Noles were down nine points with just over a minute to play, and then staged a miraculous comeback aided by some Hokie missed free-throws that avoided the bad home upset.

The Hokies' Robert Brown missed two-free throws with ten seconds remaining to set up the game-winning three from Snaer. Ian Miller was the only Seminole to finish in double figures, scoring 11 points on four of 13 from the field.

It was a brutal game on the offensive end for both teams, and included one five-minute stretch with only one field-goal combined between the two teams.

The Seminoles fell in love with the three-pointer early, which inhibited any offensive rhythm Leonard Hamilton's club was trying to establish. In addition, FSU was miserable from the charity stripe, hitting just one of eight free-throw attempts.

But they escape unscathed, and now travel to North Carolina State looking to keep pace in first place with North Carolina.

Virginia Tech Vs. Florida State Score Update: Seminoles Hold Just A Two-Point Lead Over Struggling Hokies At Half

The Florida State Seminoles lead the Virginia Tech Hokies by two points after an ugly first half at the Donald L. Tucker Center on Thursday night. It was a slow-paced twenty minutes and the Noles were plagued by nine turnovers, which kept the lowly Hokies in the game. Va. Tech is just 3-7 in the conference but we've already seen FSU put it in cruise control against the bottom of the conference and get caught at Boston College.

It was a super slow half, and the Noles put only 22 shots up. They've hit four of nine attempts from behind the arc, but again, the turnovers didn't help put any distance between themselves and the Hokies. Ian Miller led Leonard Hamilton's club with six points off the bench.
