Recap: Florida State vs. Maryland

Tallahassee, FL (Sports Network) - Michael Snaer came up clutch once again for Florida State Seminoles, connecting on the game-winning field goal in the waning second to lift his team to a 73-71 win over the Maryland Terrapins in an Atlantic Coast Conference battle at the Donald L. Tucker Center.

It was the fourth buzzer-beater in the past two seasons for Snaer, who scored team-high 19 points. He most recently accomplished the feat just six days ago in a 60-57 win over Clemson.

For the Seminoles (12-8, 4-3 ACC), Okaro White added 14 points, shooting a perfect 10-of-10 from the free-throw line, while Ian Miller chipped in 10 points.

Dez Wells scored 19 points on 8-of-12 shooting from the field to lead the Terrapins (15-6, 3-5), while Logan Aronhalt finished with 11 points and Charles Mitchell scored 10 points.

The teams had very similar performances in the first half. FSU shot 43.5 percent from the field, including 4-of-11 from 3-point range. Maryland made 44 percent of its field goal tries, including 2-of-9 from beyond the arc. Each team made 10 free throws and went into halftime knotted at 34-34.

After the break, the Terrapins connected on 53.6 percent of their field goal tries, including 4-of-6 from 3-point range. The Seminoles shot 48 percent and missed all but one of their six 3-point tries, but they did have a 14-3 scoring advantage at the free-throw line. Maryland led by eight, 62-54, with under seven minutes to play, but FSU slowly chipped away at the lead and eventually tied the game at 66-66 with 2:32 remaining. Maryland pushed back ahead by three, 71-68, before the Snaer scored the game's final five points, including his dramatic game-winner.

The Seminoles finished the contest with a 24-13 scoring edge at the free-throw line. The Terrapins dominated the boards, 36-20.
