John Paul Jones Arena 


The Seminoles (18-7, 6-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) trailed 36-35
after Joe Trapani’s 3-pointer put Boston College ahead with 18:02 to
go, but pulled away on a 13-2 run. Snaer’s jumper capped the run to
give Florida State a 48-38 lead with 13:01 remaining.

The Seminoles have spent this season searching for a go-to player to
replace Toney Douglas, last season’s runner-up in ACC Player of the
Year voting. Douglas, now a guard for the New York Knicks, sat
courtside for Sunday’s game as Snaer played like he wanted to assume
that role.

The freshman, making his third straight start, was 6-of-9 from the
floor. Snaer made 2 of 3 from 3-point range, and drove the lane for
several tough runners.

Snaer, who shoots 64.7 percent from the free throw line, made all
four attempts against the Eagles.

The Seminoles led by as many as 19, forced 20 turnovers and held the
Eagles to 33.3 percent (17 of 51) from the floor.

Chris Singleton scored 12 points and grabbed eight rebounds for
Florida State. Snaer’s first 18-point game came against
Tennessee-Martin on Dec. 22.

Florida State led 10-5, but made just two of its next 10 from 3-point
range. The Eagles, however, were 4 of 9 from behind the arc, including
two by Trapani.

Trapani, who scored 15 in a 61-57 loss to Florida State on Jan. 30,
had 14 at halftime and finished with 17.

The teams went into halftime tied at 30 after an emphatic one-handed
dunk by Boston College’s Reggie Jackson with 6 seconds left. The dunk
answered a 3-pointer by Florida State’s Deividas Dukys 21 seconds

Rakim Sanders added 12 points for the Eagles (12-13, 3-8), who have
lost five of their last six.
