TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Freshman Devon Bookert scored a career-high 18 points, Michael Snaer added 17 and Florida State fought back from an eight-point deficit in the second half to beat North Carolina State 71-67 on Saturday in the regular-season finale for both teams.

Two free throws by Bookert gave the Seminoles (17-14, 9-9 Atlantic Coast Conference) their first lead of the second half at 57-55. He then added a jumper with 2:01 left to snap a tie at 62 with 2:01 left and three free throws in the final 1:23.

North Carolina State (22-9, 11-7) led 35-34 at the half and built its advantage to eight points on three occasions in the second half, the last time at 49-41.

Scott Wood's 18 points led North Carolina State, which could lose out on a first-round bye in next week's ACC tournament if Virginia defeats Maryland on Sunday.
