on January 21 2012 7:07 PM

Duke was hoping to tie a school record with its 46th home win in a row, but Florida State had a different plan. In a nail-biter, Florida State's Michael Snaer hit a 3-point shot as time expired, leading his team to a 76-73 win over No. 4 Duke at home in Durham on Saturday.

Florida State's upset victory on the road, which came in dramatic fashion, halted Duke's 45-game homecourt winniner streak.

Snaer had something going in the game with last second shots. He scored 14 points in the game, including a 3-pointer to beat the buzzer on the final play of the first half and the 3-pointer to win the game launched with just a few tenths of a second left after Duke had taken the lead in the final seconds.

The standing-room only crowd at Duke's Cameron Indoor Stadium was stunned, to say the least, and it all happened fast. But watch the video below to see how Snaer won the game for Florida State launching a game-winning buzzer beater at the end.

With the win, Florida State advanced to 13-6 (4-1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference). It was the fourth straight win for the Seminoles. Duke dropped to 16-3 (4-1 in the ACC) with the loss, and the team's 45-game home-court win streak came to an end.
