Reddish helps Duke escape
Cam Reddish hit a three-pointer with 0.8 of a second left to lead Duke, ranked No. 2 in the USA Today coaches poll and No. 1 in the Associated Press poll, past No. 13 Florida State, 80-78, Saturday in Tallahassee, Florida.
Reddish caught the ball on the wing off the inbounds pass and made a wide open shot from behind the arc to ensure that Duke (14-1, 3-0 ACC) would win its ninth straight game. He finished with 23 points on 9-of-15 shooting.
Duke played the second half without star freshman Zion Williamson, who left the game after getting poked in the eye late in the first half. He didn’t return and had 11 points and eight rebounds in 17 minutes.
P.J. Savoy made a pair of free throws with 15.8 seconds left, just seconds after forcing a turnover, to put Florida State (13-2, 1-2) ahead, 78-76.
