TAL­LA­HAS­SEE, FLA. » Phil Cofer scored 17 points, Trent For­rest added 16 and Florida State ral­lied from an 18-point deficit in the sec­ond half.

The Semi­noles (18-8, 7-7 At­lantic Coast Con­fer­ence) didn’t take their first lead un­til 1:05 re­main­ing in over­time when For­rest made a driv­ing layup to put them up 75-74. Af­ter Clemson was called for a 5-sec­ond vi­o­la­tion on the in­bounds, For­rest came up big with an­other driv­ing layup to put FSU up by three.

Clemson scored four of the next six points to get within 79-78 but For­rest made both free throws with 5.3 sec­onds re­main­ing to ex­tend the mar­gin to three.

For­rest also had a layup with 8 sec­onds re­main­ing in regulation that tied it at 70 and sent it into over­time.

It was Allen’s best out­put in an ACC game af­ter sev­eral strug­gle-filled nights this sea­son. And Trent had his own big per­for­mance on the perime­ter by knock­ing down five 3s, part of Duke’s 15-of-33 show­ing arc.

Duke led 36-28 at half­time, then used a 9-0 burst mid­way through the sec­ond half to blow the game open.
