Zion Williamson, the reigning ACC Freshman of the Week, is coming off a 30-point, 10-rebound, 5-assist, 4-steal effort at Wake Forest - the first 30-10-5-4 game in Duke history and the first 30-10-5 game in the Mike Krzyzewski era. The star freshman left the game after getting poked in the eye late in the first half. Bolden - who contributed three points, five rebounds, and two blocks across 24 minutes - seemed to play the best of the three in the second half but was far from being spectacular.
It was a clutch shot at a critical moment for Duke, which hasn't had many close games this season and has won 13 of 14 games by 10 or more points.
Before exiting, though, Williamson once again displayed his value to the Blue Devil lineup. Senior Phil Cofer added 21. 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.
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.
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. "They rose to the different occasion". And they are going to continue to get better. Williamson sat on the bench for the second half, but didn't play. "Coach drew it up, and the play was wide open and Cam was able to execute". But that's a big loss.

She also spent heavily to build out her digital campaign infrastructure and cultivate supporters online. Harris said she was unaware of her office's work and was "shocked" to read about it in the newspaper.

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)...
The tension inside the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center only built on Saturday afternoon.
Even still, Terance Mann, M.J. Walker and Mfiondu Kabengele comprise a talented core that, on their home floor, could potentially push this Duke team a bit. Florida State could slip a little but is also deserving of holding on to its top-15 ranking. Should be good to go on Monday against Syracuse.
