CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Michael Snaer scored 30 points in his first game back from a one-game absence, and Aaron Thomas scored 17 as Florida State beat Charlotte 79-76 Saturday.

Snaer, a senior guard who sat out a win over Louisiana-Monroe on Monday for disciplinary reasons, had 17 points at halftime and hit two free throws with 11.8 seconds remaining to help seal the win.

Thomas, a freshman guard, came off the bench and scored 15 of his points in the second half and hit one of two free throws with 3.4 seconds left to give the Seminoles (7-4) their final margin.

The 49ers (11-2) trailed by as many as nine points in the second half after leading 40-35 at halftime. They got to within two points twice in the final minute, but Ivan Benkovic was unable to connect on a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Chris Braswell led Charlotte with 20 points.
