It’s been kind of a catch and go season for the Florida State Seminole men’s basketball team.
FSU has a young team and a lot of times it has showed.
The final week of the regular season went well for the Seminoles with them winning a pair of home games and all but assuring themselves post-season play.
On Thursday, Michael Snaer pulled his magic again, hitting a runner with four seconds left to give FSU a 53-51 win over Virginia. Snaer has six last-second-shot wins in the past two years for the Seminoles. Snaer finished the game with 14 points
and had 17 Saturday in the ‘Nole’s 71-67 win over North Carolina State.
Freshman Devon Bookert scored 18 in the win that gave the Seminoles a 17-14 regular season record.
They try to add to that win-total tonight when they play Clemson at 9:15 p.m. in Greensboro, N.C. in the ACC Tournament.
Florida wrapped up the regular season SEC Championship last Wednesday with a 66-40 home win over Vanderbilt.
It gave the Gators a perfect 15-0 record at home. Kenny Boynton hit 15 points, Patric Young 14 and Erik Murphy 10 in the SEC clincher.
Florida’s road woes continued Saturday when they fell to Kentucky, failing to score in the last seven minutes and thirty seconds of a game they lost to the Wildcats 61-57.
They wasted a 17-point, 11-rebound effort by Murphy in the loss that left them at 24-6 in the regular season.
Florida received a double bye in the SEC Tournament in Nashville this week.
The Gators will play the LSU-Georgia winner Friday at 1 p.m.
FAMU ended their regular season with a loss at Morgan State Saturday.
The Rattlers played North Carolina A&T in a first-round MEAC Tournament game Tuesday in Norfolk, Virginia.
