North Carolina opened the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament by reclaiming the form that carried the Tar Heels through February. The only question is whether they’ll have to continue their title chase without the guy who sparked their late-season surge.
Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton says his young team is growing up although he’s not sure they’ve come far enough to repeat as Atlantic Coast Conference tournament champions.
Defending Atlantic Coast Conference champion Florida State may not repeat next week at the ACC tournament, but the Seminoles served notice Saturday that they still intend to have something to say about it.
James Michael McAdoo scored 17 of his 21 points in the first half and sparked the run that gave North Carolina a big lead on the way to beating Florida State 79-58 on Sunday.
Boston College coach Steve Donahue knew plenty about Florida State’s Michael Snaer. But where did this Devon Bookert guy come from?
Michael Snaer is a senior on an otherwise freshman-laden Florida State team, and he takes that responsibility seriously. Snaer rose to the occasion Saturday, scoring a career-high 30 points as the Seminoles held on to beat Charlotte 79-76.
Michael Snaer was the California player of the year and a McDonald’s All American who passed up chances to join any of several of the nation’s traditional powerhouses to make a difference at a school trying to climb into the elite.
Bernard James scored 15 of his 18 points in the second half and No. 15 Florida State snapped Miami’s five-game winning streak with a 64-59 victory on Saturday.
