CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Okaro White had 15 points and stole an inbounds pass with 17 seconds left to preserve Florida State's 71-66 victory over Clemson to start Atlantic Coast Conference play Saturday.

The defending ACC champion Seminoles (9-5, 1-0) led by 16 points on Michael Snaer's 3-pointer to start the second half, yet were ahead just 66-63 in the final minute with the ball in the Tigers' hands. But White stepped in front of Rod Hall's pass, was fouled and made both free throws to extend the lead.

Clemson (8-5, 0-1) got within 69-66 on Milton Jennings' 3-pointer with 4.5 seconds to go before Terrance Shannon iced the game for Florida State with two foul shots.

Snaer, the ACC's third-leading scorer coming in, scored all eight of his points in the second half for Florida State.

Devin Booker had 19 points and 11 rebounds to lead Clemson.
