BUZZER BEATER: FSU's Michael Snaer Does It Again. Shoots Down Clemson

Knocking down buzzer beaters is nothing new for Florida State’s Michael Snaer.  Last season he nailed two including a memorable one at Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium that shot down the Blue Devils.
Snaer did it again Thursday night against Clemson.  Here’s the report from FSOG Seminole Productions.

"When the shot went in, I really said in my head, 'I can't believe I did that again,'" Snaer said. "For that to happen again, it feels great to be able to do that for Florida State. As much as this program and this community has done for me, to do that is just amazing."
Snaer finished the game with 11 points.

“They did a very good job of clogging the middle and not giving us the driving lanes.”  Florida State head coach Leonard Hamilton said.  “Michael didn’t have much of a

choice. We didn’t want to ball screen to give them a chance to switch. We wanted to drive the ball at the basket and give them a chance at least to foul us. Their defense was solid enough that Michael didn’t have the look or the lane to drive to the basket. He tried to get a good look at the basket. He is very confident. He knocked it down. It was a big win for us. We needed something positive for us.”

The Seminoles did need to reverse course coming into the Clemson game with a two game losing streak.  The defending ACC Champions hit the road for a Sunday showdown with ACC front runner Miami.

The Hurricanes will be fresh from their season’s signature win over Duke.
