TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Michael Snaer scored 21 points Saturday and Florida State hung on for a 69-66 win over Boston College.
The Eagles had a chance to tie at the buzzer, but Ryan Anderson's 3-point try bounced off the front rim.
Florida State (14-11, 6-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) led by as many as 12 points in the opening half on its way to a 31-26 lead at the break, but BC rallied to take a brief 45-42 lead on Patrick Heckmann's 3.
Okaro White joined Snaer in double figures for the Seminoles with 13 points to go along with a team-high eight rebounds. Both were recipients of some deft passing by freshman point guard Devon Bookert, who had eight assists and no turnovers in 31 minutes.
Boston College (11-14, 3-9) was led by Olivier Hanlan's 19 points. Heckmann and Anderson, who had a game-high 11 rebounds, each added 10 points for the Eagles.
