Duke did exactly what they wanted to do down in Tallahassee and that was get some revenge on Florida State who beat the Blue Devils on their home court 33 days earlier. In a tough atmosphere the Blue Devils never broke and led for most of the game as they went on to beat the Seminoles 74-66.
Andre Dawkins was hot from beyond the arc as he shot 6-9 on three pointers and finished with a team high 22 points. Austin Rivers wasn’t far behind has he chipped in with 20 points of his own. Anytime FSU got close, it seemed that Dawkins or Rivers would answer with a nice bucket that would quite the crowd and extend the Blue Devils lead. That’s exactly what good teams do. Bend but don’t break and get the victory.
The win kept the Blue Devils (24-4, 11-2) tied with No. 7 North Carolina for first place in the Atlantic Coast Conference while Florida State (19-8, 10-3) dropped a game behind.
Enjoy those “Beat Duke” shirts FSU students! Maybe you can wear them to an upcoming baseball game.
