Michael Snaer scored 14 points and grabbed four rebounds to lead the Seminoles past struggling Wake Forest. The freshman stepped to the line with 4.2 seconds left and knocked down two clutch free throws giving Florida State a two possession lead which led to the win.
Defense was key in Florida State's win once again as the tribe gave up just 25 points in the first half and 22 in the second. Leading the defensive charge was ACC defensive player of the year candidate Chris Singleton as the ACC steals leader took the ball away from Wake Forest on four separate occasions.
Solomon Alabi put forth good effort on both ends of the court scoring 10 points and blocking two shots. Xavier Gibson came off the bench and contributed in limited minutes. Due to foul trouble, the super sophomore played just 18 minutes but scored 10 points and went 2-2 from beyond the arch.
The win is exactly what Florida State needed to feel comfortable heading into the final two games as the Tribe likely placed themselves into the NCAA Tournament for the second straight year with the win.
Florida State will now travel to Coral Gables to play the Miami Hurricanes Saturday before heading to Greensboro for the ACC Tournament.
Back to the Dance!
