Florida State Beats UNC 85-82 To Win 1st ACC Championship

ATLANTA (AP) Goodbye, Tobacco Road. The Atlantic Coast Conference championship is heading to the Sunshine State.


Michael Snaer scored 18 points and 17th-ranked Florida State used a barrage of 3-pointers to beat No. 4 North Carolina 85-82 for the ACC championship Sunday.


Florida State (24-9), which joined the ACC in 1991, won the men's basketball crown for the first time, showing its 33-point blowout of the Tar Heels during the regular season was no fluke.


But this one went to the wire, as North Carolina (29-5) nearly came all the way back from a 16-point deficit in the first half. P.J. Hairston missed a tying 3 at the buzzer.


It was the first time since Maryland's title in 2004 that a team outside the state of North Carolina won the tournament.
