Michael Snaer continues to knock down game-winning shots, and Duke is well-versed in what Florida State's top scorer can do down the stretch. The fifth-ranked Blue Devils hope to avoid any heroics from Snaer when they visit the Seminoles on Saturday. The last two home games for Florida State (12-8, 4-3 ACC) have been victories courtesy of Snaer, who banked in a 25-footer at the buzzer in a 60-57 win over Clemson last Thursday before stunning Maryland with a 3-pointer with 1.1 seconds left in Wednesday's 73-71 victory. "I got a clean look tonight so I knew it was going in once it left my hand," Snaer said about his latest game-winner. "It just happened."

Snaer, who also hit a game-winning 3 to beat Virginia Tech last Feb. 16, avera...
