CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The Florida State men's basketball team dropped just its second road contest of the season Saturday, falling to Virginia, 56-36, at John Paul Jones Arena.

The Seminoles (10-7, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) will now try to bounce back from consecutive conference losses when they return to action Thursday at home against Clemson. The 'Noles opened ACC play earlier this month with a 72-66 victory on the Tigers' home floor.

FSU's wasn't nearly as successful on the Cavaliers' (12-5, 2-2) court because it simply couldn't score the basketball and couldn't recover from Virginia's 22-4 run in the first half.

The Seminoles' registered just 16 baskets on 43 shot attempts and were just 1-for-15 from 3-point range. Florida State was also just 3-for-8 from the free-throw line. On the flip side, Virginia shot nearly 49 percent from the field and 54 percent from long range and missed just one of its six attempts from the charity stripe.

The Cavs also out-rebounded the 'Noles, 28-20, and had two less turnovers (16 as compared to 18 by the visitors).

While Virginia got 17 and 13 points from Joe Harris and Akil Mitchell, respectively, FSU didn't have any double-digit scorers. Michael Snaer led the way with nine points and Okaro White had eight. Fellow veteran Terrance Shannon added three points, three steals and four rebounds but had to be placed on a backboard and taken off the court on a stretcher late in the second half with an apparent upper body injury.

After the game, FSU coach Leonard Hamilton said Shannon sustained a "stinger" and that he had movement in his extremities.

Ian Miller, Boris Bojanovsky and Robert Gilchrist each scored four points for the Seminoles.
