TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Cam Reddish hit a 3-pointer with 0.8 seconds ahead of number 1 Duke passing number 13 Florida State 80-78 on Saturday.
Reddied the ball on the wing of the incoming pass and opened a wide open 3-hand to ensure that Duke (14-1, 3-0 ACC) would win his ninth consecutive game. He finished with 23 points on 9-of-15 shooting.
Duke played the second half without stars freshman Zion Williamson, who left after being gunned late in the first half. He did not return and had 11 points and eight rebounds in 17 minutes.
P.J. Savoy made a free throw with 15.8 seconds, just seconds after forcing a turnover, making Florida State 78-76. RJ Barrett, who finished with 32 points on 10-of-19 shooting, then hit the first of two free throws with another 5 seconds to go. He missed the second, but the Blue Devils retained the possession after an assessment that drove a call on the floor that the ball had been hit from a dark player. That saved the winner of Reddish.
Mfiondu Kabengele came off the bench to take his third double-double career, with a record high career with 24 points and 10 rebounds for Florida State (13-3, 1-2). Phil Cofer made five 3-pointers and had a seasonal high of 21 points.
