Snaer's late 3 lifts FSU over Maryland 73-71

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Michael Snaer made a 3-pointer with 1.1 seconds left to lift Florida State to a 73-71 win over Maryland on Wednesday.

It was the second last-gasp 3-pointer in seven days for Snaer, who also lifted the Seminoles to a 60-57 win when he banked in a 25-footer at the buzzer to beat Clemson. Snaer also had two buzzer-beating 3-pointers last season to give Florida State wins over Duke and Virginia Tech.

Snaer had 19 points and Okaro White added 14 points for Florida State (12-8, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Maryland's Dez Wells scored 13 of his 19 points in the second half, but the Terrapins fell short as Alex Len, who averages 13 points per game, scored a season-low four points.

The Terrapins (15-6, 3-5) have lost two straight, including Saturday's 84-64 loss to Duke.

Maryland outrebounded Florida State 36-20.

More talk of Redskins OC Sean McVay as head coach - but this time on college level

More talk of Redskins OC Sean McVay as head coach - but this time on college level

When LSU fired head coach Les Miles, a lot of big-time names were suggested for the job. But what about Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay?

Albert Breer of the MMQB listed McVay as a potential candidate, along with a host of other NFL names to go with obvious college options like Tom Herman or Lane Kiffin. From Breer on McVay:

His star has risen so quickly that the 30-year-old may be an NFL head coach before colleges even get the chance to call, but he’d make a lot of sense for a program looking for energy and buzz.

Watching McVay work it's obvious he has the passion and ability to connect with young players - as he currently runs the Redskins offense that includes some players older than him. But it's worth keeping in mind the Redskins coordinator was raised around the pro game, not the college one, and with his background and offensive acumen the guess here is that McVay will stay in the professional ranks. 


Even while scoring is down for Washington through three games, the Redskins offense is moving the ball well. QB Kirk Cousins is second in the league in passing yards, and the team finished 2015 with the 10th highest scoring offense.

"I’m sure he’ll be a head coach a lot sooner than people think," Washington head coach Jay Gruden said of McVay in an early August MMQB article.

It's clear McVay will get a chance as a head coach, the only question is where. Apparently that list could now include Baton Rouge. 

NOTE: Former Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan also landed on Breer's list of LSU possibilities. From Breer, "Would Shanahan go? He’s 37 and he’s been an OC for nine years, so it’s possible he’d want to get his feet wet as a head coach. Remember, [Texans coach Bill] O’Brien went to Penn State after knocking on the door for NFL jobs, so it’s not hard to see another rising young guy doing it. Shanahan played at Texas and coached at UCLA, which means he’s not foreign to big college programs."

Miley hopes he can get Orioles even closer to postseason

Miley hopes he can get Orioles even closer to postseason

Tonight's Game:

Baltimore Orioles (88-72) vs. New York Yankees (83-77), Yankee Stadium, Bronx, N.Y., 4:05 p.m. 

Starting pitchers:

Wade Miley (9-13, 5.40) vs. Luis Severino (3-8, 5.75)

Keys to the Game:

Can Miley follow up on his magnificent start of a week ago, when he allowed one run in 8 2/3 innings? 

Can the Orioles secure a wild-card berth today? With a win and loss by Toronto or Detroit, they're in. 

News and Notes:

Miley is 0-3 with a 5.77 ERA in six starts against the Yankees. 

Miley was away from the team during the Toronto series for the birth of a son. 

Current Orioles are batting .174 against Severino.

Orioles pitchers allowed three hits or fewer four times in September after recording only one game in the first five months of the season.

According to Elias, Jonathan Schoop is the first Orioles player to break a RBI-less streak of 15 or more games with five RBIs since Chico Salmon drove in six after 19 games without an RBI on Aug. 16, 1969.
