FSU loses to top-ranked Duke on last-second 3-pointer

After the game, head coach coach Mike Krzyzewski told the the Raleigh News & Observer's Steve Wiseman that Williamson suffered double vision after the collision, which prevented him from re-entering the game.

It is especially bad with No. 4 Virginia coming into Cameron Indoor Stadium on Saturday.

When the freshman point guard writhed in pain on the court not even seven minutes into Duke's 95-91 overtime loss to unranked Orange, the Blue Devils instantly changed.

Jones went down early in the first quarter after getting tangled up scrambling for a rebound with Syracuse's Frank Howard. He has turned the ball over just 14 times in 14 games this season. This was the Duke that had to outscore its opponent and could not rely on its defense to lead the way.

If you don't know, collegiate players are now allowed to go to the NBA Combine, talk with teams, and test the waters. He leads Duke with 33 steals. Before those two games, UNC hadn't won a game with 20-plus turnovers since January 2015.

With just 15 seconds left in a tie game and one second remaining on the shot clock, Reddish fouled Florida State's PJ Savoy on an attempted three to give Savoy three foul shots. Yes, open 3-pointers are available against Syracuse's 2-3 zone.

The Syracuse Orange are now in enemy territory facing their conference rival, the number one ranked Duke Blue Devils. Jones' injury has the potential to be catastrophic for Duke, with Jones tops in the ACC in assist-to-turnover ratio while also serving as an elite on-the-ball defender on a team that ranks third in Division I in Ken Pomeroy's defensive efficiency rankings.


Krzyzewski said that Reddish was fighting cramps the entire second half as well.

"There were three different things that we were going to do", he said. But Battle put this team on his back and refused to let it happen. Duke is the kind of team that can win it all.

The No. 13 Florida State Seminoles took No. 1 Duke to the brink before a sellout crowd at the Tucker Center on Saturday afternoon, but the Blue Devils delivered a stunning 3-pointer with 0.8 seconds left to pull off an 80-78 victory. The Blue Devils are 3-1 against ranked teams this season and were 6-4 versus ranked teams in 2017-18... As electric as the Duke team is, still spearheaded by the terrific group of freshman listed above, a prolonged injury to Tre Jones would require backup point guard Jordan Goldwire and RJ Barrett to continue to pick up the slack. That doesn't mean it was fun. "Then, you're trying to survive, really".

The nature of their current ailments indicate that Reddish will be back long before Jones.

The Seminoles had their outside game working, too, and so did Duke with Reddish and Barrett leading the way.

He finished an assist shy of a triple-double with 23 points and 16 rebounds. The Blue Devils ended up shooting just 38.7 percent from the field, and just over 20 percent from three.
