When Michael Snaer silenced a roaring Cameron Indoor Arena with a game winning three as time expired on Saturday afternoon, it didn't just snap fourth-ranked Duke's 45-game home winning streak.
The Seminoles' 76-73 victory also raised the question whether they should be considered legitimate ACC title contenders.
Crazy as it may sound considering Florida State is three weeks removed from scoring 10 points in a half vs. Princeton and losing by 20 at Clemson, the Seminoles appear to belong in the ACC championship conversation. In the past week alone, they clobbered North Carolina by 33, handled Maryland by 14 and upset Duke on the road, raising their record to 4-1 in ACC play.
What's especially promising for Florida State is its remaining schedule appears as favorable as any of its fellow ACC contenders.
Three of the Seminoles' five remaining conference road games are at Wake Forest, Boston College and Miami. They don't play North Carolina again and their s...

There were signs all over Cameron Indoor Stadium that the Blue Devil's 45 game home winning streak was in jeopardy, one of them was literally in the Duke student section.
"Wins LImit," one sign read with a number I didn't quite catch above it. In retrospect perhaps not the best sign to create and bring to support your team, but the game was neither won or lost...
Michael Snaer’s 3-pointer as time expired ended the Devils 45 game home win streak but the writing was on the wall for Duke to drop this game to Florida State at Cameron. Duke has yet to establish itself as a strong defensive team. I’m not much for streaks and the pressure that puts on a team, they has never really mattered to me, what matters to me is how the game is played...
