— Michael Snaer’s 3-point shot as time expired lifted Florida State to a come-from-behind 60-57 win against Clemson Thursday night.

Snaer’s winning shot gave the Seminoles their only lead of the second half and their first since going up 16-13 early in the game.

Clemson led by as many as 12 early in the second half and was ahead 44-34 on a Devin Booker jumper midway through the final half before the Seminoles began to chip away.

Florida State’s Devon Bookert drained a 3-point basket from near the top of the key that tied the game at 57 with 44 seconds left and the Seminoles got the ball back with eight seconds remaining after a shot clock violation on Clemson, which couldn’t get a shot off in time.

Florida State (11-7, 3-2 ACC) was led by Kiel Turpin’s career-high 16 points, all in the second half.

KJ McDaniels and Booker led Clemson (10-8, 2-4) with 15 points each.
