VIDEO: Michael Snaer's second-game winning three of the year

For the second time this season, Michael Snaer won a game for Florida State with a game-winning three-ball:

We all remember the shot that he hit against Duke. It was one of the iconic moments of the season, as the Seminoles reaffirmed the fact that they belong in the conversation for the best team in the ACC. Tonight's game-winner, however, came in a bit of a different situation. Florida State was playing at home against a struggling Virginia Tech team that was losing players left and right to injury. It got to the point that CJ Barksdale, who entered the arena in a walking boot, went and changed into his uniform just in case he was needed.

And the Hokies got up by as much as 15 over Florida State in the second half.

Florida State came back -- in large part due to some poor free throw shooting by the Hokies -- and erased a nine point deficit in the final 73 seconds.

That's a good thing. A win is rarely a bad thing. But this win isn't a statement as much as it is a point of concern. If it takes this much for Florida State to beat Virginia Tech, what happens when they have an off night against a healthy -- or a good -- opponent.

For what its worth, take a look at how similar this shot was to the shot Snaer hit against North Carolina earlier this year:
