See the brilliant inbound play that saved Duke against Florida State

Cam Reddish

"But he got poked right in the eye". We've never seen a player quite like Williamson, who can smack a shot into the second row on one end and then throw down a 360 dunk on the other. But with 23 points and the game-winner on Saturday against the No. 13 Seminoles, Reddish showed not only the world but himself that he knew how to find his way out of it. For freshmen to step up in a hostile environment like that in crunch time is nothing short of incredible. 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.

Phil Cofer, who had missed a majority of the season so far due to injury, made his presence known against the Blue Devils, pouring in 21 points and seven rebounds. To make matters worse, Duke's role players, previously the difference-makers when it needed a spark, struggled to produce when the Blue Devils needed them most. And they are going to continue to get better. "They rose to the different occasion".

But Williamson's double vision finally cleared post game, increasing the chances he'll be available to play Monday night when Duke plays Syracuse at Cameron Indoor Stadium. It was a big loss.

Williamson didn't experience any headaches with the double vision, Krzyzewski said. For this game? Are you kidding? The Seminoles are 39-3 since November 2016 at the Donald L. Tucker Center.

Brie Larson and Alex Greenwald end engagement
Brie Larson has reportedly called off her engagement to her fiancé of almost 3 years, actor and musician Alex Greenwald . That same year, Alex accompanied Brie to some of the big award shows, including the Golden Globes and the Oscars .

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.

Duke: The Blue Devils were on the ropes but pulled out a road victory in a tough environment, doing it without Williamson.

Florida State: The Seminoles missed out on their fifth win over a top-ranked team.

Florida State accustomed to being tested by ACC power Duke. Should be good to go on Monday against Syracuse.
