Florida State vs Charlotte

Florida St. 79, Charlotte 76

  •  

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Michael Snaer scored 30 points in his first game back from a one-game absence, and Aaron Thomas scored 17 as Florida State beat Charlotte 79-76 Saturday.

Snaer, a senior guard who sat out a win over Louisiana-Monroe on Monday for disciplinary reasons, had 17 points at halftime and hit two free throws with 11.8 seconds remaining to help seal the win.

Thomas, a freshman guard, came off the bench and scored 15 of his points in the second half and hit one of two free throws with 3.4 seconds left to give the Seminoles (7-4) their final margin.

The Seminoles trailed 40-35 at halftime but went on a 10-0 spurt early in the second half and took the lead for good at 47-45. They went on to lead by as many as nine points and held off several surges by Charlotte (11-2) down the stretch.

Charlotte got as close as 73-71 on a three-point play by DeMario Mayfield with 55.6 seconds left, but Florida State's Devon Bookert hit three free throws and Snaer two from there.

The 49ers again cut the margin to two at 78-76 on E. Victor Nickerson's 3-pointer with 6 seconds left, but couldn't force overtime when Ivan Benkovic missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Both Charlotte's losses have come to Atlantic Coast Conference teams. The 49ers lost 77-46 at Miami on Dec. 14.

Chris Braswell led Charlotte with 20 points and Mayfield scored 16.
