Michael Snaer hit a driving layup just before the buzzer, giving Florida State a 56-54 victory over Georgia Tech in the Atlantic Coast Conference on Tuesday night.

Snaer made up for a turnover on the Seminoles' previous possession. After Mfon Udofia missed a 3-pointer to break the deadlock, Florida State rebounded and called timeout to set up the last play.

Devon Bookert dribbled down the clock before passing off to Snaer. He might've gotten away with a push-off — Udofia went flying near the top of the key — and Snaer drove the lane to bank it in just before the red light went off.

Snear led the Seminoles (13-9, 5-4 ACC) with 15 points. Daniel Miller and Brandon Reed had 9 points each for Georgia Tech (12-9, 2-7).
