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

Zion Williamson left Duke's 80-78 last-second win over Florida State in the first half after getting poked in the eye.

Not only that, but juniors Marques Bolden, Javin DeLaurier, and particularly Jack White appeared to suffer from a lack of confidence once it became clear that the Incredible Hulk would not reenter the game (Williamson took a finger to the eye near the end of the first half and never returned because he had double-vision; the latest word is that Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski is "hopeful" he will be back in the lineup when the No. 1 Blue Devils host unranked Syracuse on Monday at 9 p.m. on ESPN). The freshman phenom exited the game after the poke.

Williamson is the reigning ACC Freshman of the Week after finishing with 30 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and four steals at Wake Forest.

Coach K had Barrett flash to the ball to draw the attention of defenders, while two other Duke players crashed the lane. Senior Phil Cofer added 21.

RJ Barrett drove to the basket and was fouled.

Reddish, who has been bogged down by uneven play much of the past month, might have course-corrected his college career with arguably the biggest 3-pointer of his life to this point. Duke as a team was outrebounded 39-34 and gave up 10 dunks, many on uncontested lobs to the bigger Seminoles. "They rose to a different occasion". Plus, in the first half, the Seminoles committed 11 turnovers; in the second half, that number was six.

Just when you thought Logan Paul was coming to his senses, he finds a new demographic with sensory language. For March though, the co-hosts said it was "Male-Only March".

The experience of winning in a hostile environment, without their best player, will serve Duke well as the season progresses. It was a big loss. Williamson sat on the bench for the second half, but didn't play. "For this game, are you kidding?"

Duke likely will remain the No. 1 team in the nation. This marks the fourth consecutive meeting in the series with each team ranked in the AP Top 25, and the lowest combined ranking (14) in the series since No. 2 Duke defeated No. 13 Florida State, 75-63, in Tallahassee on January 10, 1998.

By the time 6-2 Blue Devil guard Tre Jones was handed the ball along the baseline, 7-foot-4 FSU center Christ Koumadje screaming and flailing in front of him, 11,000 fans were following Koumadje's lead, eager to see Duke go down for the third straight time in Tallahassee when ranked No. 1 in the country.

Defense Makes StatementDuke enters the Florida State game as the only team in the top five of both offensive and defensive efficiency, and one of two teams in the top 10 for both (Virginia)...
