ATLANTA (AP) - Florida State lost a 10-point lead in the second half before recovering to beat Duke 62-59 on Saturday, sending the Seminoles to only the second ACC tournament championship game in the program's history.
 
Michael Snaer scored 16 points, including a 3-pointer with 3:27 remaining that gave the Seminoles the lead for good. But No. 17 Florida State (23-9) had to survive some last minute scares - including missed 3-point attempts by Duke's Austin Rivers and Seth Curry in the final six seconds.
 
Florida State will face fourth-ranked North Carolina, the top seed, in Sunday's championship game.
 
The second-seeded Seminoles ended a run of three straight ACC tournament championships for Duke (27-6). Rivers led the Blue Devils with 19 points. Curry had 13.
