Florida State beats Saint Joseph's 73-66
FLORIDA ST 73, SAINT JOSEPHS 66

By JIM O'CONNELL
AP Basketball Writer

NEW YORK (AP) -- What you are about to read is true: There is a
college basketball player who would rather come off the bench
than be in the starting lineup.



Yup, there is at least one and he was a big reason his team took
home a tournament title.



Reserve forward Terrance Shannon scored 15 points - 11 in the
final 13:45 - and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead Florida State to a
73-66 victory over Saints Joseph's on Saturday night in the
championship game of the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic at Barclays
Center.



Shannon likes not hearing his name in pregame introductions. He
would rather do what he does for the Seminoles.



"I have really gotten into that sixth man role," Shannon said.
"I like bringing that spark, that energy the team needs once the
game gets going. And on this team it's not like there's a big
drop-off to the second group."



After Saint Joseph's got within 63-60, Shannon scored six
straight points, two on a goaltending down low, two on a long
layup after a missed 3 by the Hawks and on a vicious rebound
dunk with 2:14 left that made it 69-61.



"Terrance will always play starters minutes," Seminoles coach
Leonard Hamilton said. "He loves bringing energy off the bench.
He was afraid that I was going to start him and he came to me
and said he wants to be the spark. He likes to watch the first 5
minutes of the game and see what we need from and other guys as
well."



Okaro White added 16 points for the Seminoles (3-1) while
tournament MVP Michael Snaer had 14. Shannon had six points as
Florida State closed the game on a 10-6 run after the Hawks
(2-1) had closed within 63-60 with 4:47 to play.



Snaer, the only senior to play in the rotation, said this young
team - five freshmen and one sophomore in the rotation - said
this team has figured out some important things way before last
season's veteran team did.



"We need guys who are going to make that extra pass. We need
guys to feed off each other," said Snaer, the MVP of last
season's Atlantic Coast Conference tournament when the Seminoles
won their first conference title. "These guys are still learning
all that, but they have learned so much and they are just going
out to play and win."



Ronald Roberts had his second double-double in as many days for
the Hawks, finishing with 15 points and 11 rebounds.



Carl Jones, making his first appearance of the season after
serving a three-game suspension for a "violation of the
University community standards," finished with 13 points. The
Hawks' leading scorer the past two seasons had half of their
four 3-pointers as they struggled from beyond the arc.



"Let's call it the way it is," Hawks coach Phil Martelli said.
"He stood around too much and then instead of being hard to
guard he was easy to guard. He wasn't playing four games
tonight, he was playing one and it was a loss."



The Seminoles, who beat BYU 88-70 in the semifinals, shot 54.5
percent from the field (30 of 55) and they made six of their 13
3-point attempts.



The Hawks, who advanced by beating No. 20 Notre Dame 79-70 in
overtime, were 1 for 11 from 3-point range in the second half
and finished 4 for 21 overall (19.0 percent).



Down the stretch Saint Joseph's four 3-point attempts in as many
possessions, a streak ended by Jones' 3 with 4:47 left that
brought the Hawks within 63-60.



The Hawks finished with a 35-29 rebound advantage, including
15-7 on the offensive end which they converted into 18 points
but the Seminoles dominated inside overall, finishing with a
44-30 scoring advantage in the paint.



The Hawks also hurt themselves at the free throw line going 16
of 26 while the Seminoles were 7 of 10.



"People are asking `Were we tired playing a second straight
night?' Martelli said. "I don't believe that. I don't accept
that. You are supposed to empty your tank. We didn't do that
tonight. There was no pop, no sizzle. We'll be back at practice
soon."



Notre Dame beat BYU 78-68 in the third-place game.
