Florida State's Michael Snaer Wins 2012 ACC Tournament MVP

The Florida State Seminoles won their first-ever ACC Tournament Championship on Sunday afternoon. Junior guard and former McDonald's All-American Michael Snaer took home MVP honors, after a hot-hand in the first half pushed the Noles to a lead over North Carolina that they would not relinquish.

Snaer had 54 points in the Seminoles' three game, three day run to the title. He missed only one attempt from three-point range in each game, finishing an impressive nine of 12 from behind the arc during the tournament. Just this week, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski praised Snaer as the best competitor in the league:

"I think (Michael) Snaer is a damn good player," Blue Devils coach Mike Kryzyzewski said. "He's an outstanding athlete, he's smart, and I think he's the best competitor in our league."

It's a fitting honor after such a successful season and week in Atlanta.
