Virginia Loses on the Road at Florida State 53-51

Posted: Updated:

Florida State's Michael Snaer's left-handed runner in heavy traffic with 4 seconds left lifted the Seminoles to a 53-51 win over Virginia Thursday after the Cavaliers had fought back from an 11-point deficit to take the lead in the game's final seconds.

It was the fourth game-winning shot by Snaer in Atlantic Coast Conference play this season and his sixth over the past two years.

Okaro White led the Seminoles (16-14, 8-9 ACC) with 17 points while Snaer finished with 14.

Akil Mitchell led Virginia (20-10, 10-7) with 15 points and a game-high 12 rebounds, but missed a layup with 21 seconds left with the Cavaliers leading 51-50.

Florida State's Devon Bookert grabbed the rebound and Florida State called a timeout with 12 seconds left.

Joe Harris, whose two free throws gave Virginia the lead with 1:28 left, missed a desperation heave from 3-point distance at the final buzzer.
