Associated Press  |  Last updated November 21, 2012
Michael Snaer scored 17 of his 21 points in the second half as Florida State held off North Florida 75-67 Wednesday night. Okaro White added 15 points and nine rebounds and Terrance Shannon had 12 points for the Seminoles (4-1), who won their fourth straight game after a season-opening loss to South Alabama. Parker Smith scored 20 points and had five rebounds, and Beau Beech added 12 points and five rebounds for North Florida (1-4). Florida State jumped out to a 16-3 lead at the 14:23 mark of the first half and was ahead by at least six points until the final minute of the game. North Florida cut the lead to five, 70-65, on a pair of free throws by Smith with 40 seconds left. The Ospreys tried to get back in the game by shooting the 3-pointer. While Smith made 4 of 9 of his attempts, North Florida shot just 9 of 33 (27.3 percent) from beyond the arc. But the Seminoles made 5 of 6 free throws down the stretch to win. They finished 23 of 28 from the line, with Snaer making 9 of 10. Terry Whisnant had eight points in the first half as Florida State led 32-24 at halftime. Florida State outrebounded North Florida 43-29. Florida State played without guard Ian Miller, who has a bone bruise in his right foot. Seminoles coach Leonard Hamilton said he thinks Miller can play in the team's next game against Minnesota on Tuesday night. The Seminoles have now won seven straight home games against teams from the state of Florida.
