No. 13 FSU confident, ready to host No. 1 Duke, Zion Williamson

No. 13 FSU confident, ready to host No. 1 Duke, Zion Williamson

The Seminoles anticipated it would be R.J. Freshman Cam Reddish was up to the task.

FSU has had success against top-ranked teams in recent years, with victories over No. 1 North Carolina in the semifinals of the 2009 ACC Tournament and during the 2010-11 regular season, and against Duke in Tallahassee on January 6, 2002.

For Reddish, it was a redemptive moment after a six-game stretch in which he hit a bit of a shooting slump. For FSU, Mfiondu Kabengele led the Seminoles in both points and rebounds by recording 24 points and 10 rebounds.

"It's a blessing", Reddish said. "I've worked so hard to get here". Trusting God. Praying every day to be who I was. "I'm glad I made the shot".

Zion Williamson got poked in the eye during the first half of action.

He suffered from double vision and sat on the bench in the second half but Krzyzewski said it's possible that Williamson will play in Duke's next game against Syracuse. Florida State took advantage inside with the big-bodied Williamson out, and the Seminoles made it their mission to score easy baskets in the paint. The Seminoles had their outside game working, too, and so did Duke with Reddish and Barrett leading the way.

Williamson turned the ball over on the play and went down to the court in pain. The Seminoles took a 78-76 lead with 15 seconds remaining that had the crowd on its feet. Phil Cofer got the rebound and tried to knock it out of bounds off a Duke player.

Macedonia Lawmakers Set Again To Debate Name Change Amid Uncertainty
Ahead of the Macedonian vote, Prime Minister Zoran Zaev had emphasised the historic importance of the decision. In October past year , Macedonia went to referendum where vote fails to reach turnout threshold.

Duke appeared to be taking control in the first half - the Blue Devils led by 10 points with just over nine minutes remaining - but Florida State ended the period with a strong run to take a 39-38 lead into the break.

"Coach said it", Barrett said.

"I think they have a player now that probably is the most phenomenal talent that's been in the ACC since Michael Jordan", Hamilton said of Blue Devils star Zion Williamson.

Reddish and Barrett were stunned that he was left all alone.

Having said that, Florida State is no joke.

"I have five guys who hadn't been in that atmosphere up in Virginia, and we didn't fare so well", he said.
