Seminole Fact: Michael Snaer was named a pre-season All-American for the second time this fall by the editors of CBSSports.com. In naming Snaer to its' All-American Third Team, the editors called the Seminole senior "One of the best two-way players in the country" and said: "He's a lock-down defensive player and more than capable of going for 20-plus points on any given night. Snaer will be the Seminoles' leader and should team with Ian Miller to form one of the most potent backcourts in the country."
Snaer is one of only two players from the ACC (James Michael McAdoo of North Carolina was also named to the Third Team) who was named to one of the four All-American teams by CBSSports.com.
The Seminoles, who won their first ACC Championship in 2012, enter the season looking to become the first team outside of the state of North Carolina to win back-to-back ACC Championships.
