Duke Tops Florida State With Last-Second Cam Reddish Buzzer-Beater

But, it came up just short. "Maybe it does in horseshoes but not in basketball". Jordan Goldwire is a career 7.65 minute per game player whose jump shot seems to be off-kilter, Barrett is best off the ball, and no one is in the same stratosphere as Jones defensively. Reddish, another standout freshman who has struggled lately, proved that Duke has other freshman heroes to step up and get the job done. Duke was without Cam Reddish who sat out due to illness and Tre Jones left the game early in the first half with an injury.

With 2.8 seconds remaining, Duke drew up a brilliant play for Reddish, who drained a wide-open catch-and-shoot three to give Duke the win.

Syracuse (12-5, 3-1 in ACC) received 32 points from Tyus Battle and 20 from Elijah Hughes. I was praying like insane, trying to get back to myself. Coach Mike Krzyzewski defended his scheduling approach after the Wake Forest win, noting he wants to prepare his team for March by playing marquee neutral-court games before league play - something Duke did against Kentucky (win), Auburn (win), Gonzaga (loss) and Texas Tech (win). "We've got to go back and look at film and see how he delivered that pass right on the money". He can't play, obviously, if he has that'.

"They rose", he said of Barrett and Reddish. "They rose to the different occasion". "We come up with a top-10 schedule every year".

China sentences Canadian Robert Lloyd Schellenberg to death, raises diplomatic tension
But Schellenberg's lawyer, Zhang Dongshuo, said prosecutors had not produced any new evidence to justify a heavier sentence . A Chinese person convicted of involvement in the same operation as Schellenberg received a suspended death sentence earlier.


No matter how they got it, the win was huge for the Orange heading into the second half of January.

He also ranks fifth in both steals (2.1 per game) and blocked shots (1.7 per game).

P.J. Savoy made a pair of free throws with 15.8 seconds left, just seconds after forcing a turnover, to put Florida State ahead 78-76.

Williamson and classmate RJ Barrett are the only pair of teammates nationally each averaging 20 points per game - Barrett leads the ACC and is 15th nationally (22.8), with Williamson second in the ACC and 28th in the NCAA (20.9).

Without the benefit of film review, no one at Florida State could yet explain quite how Reddish got such an open look at the basket. Mfiondu Kabengele was aggressive and finished with a team-high 24 points and 10 rebounds. He made an off-balanced corner 3 before the shot clock expired and added multiple breakaway slam dunks.

"I didn't think we handled it as well as I would've wanted in the first half", Krzyzewski said. They have all of the ingredients. And perhaps it was good for them to be able to lead the Blue Devils, with so much of the spotlight going to Williamson this season.

The Seminoles remained poised down the stretch, responding to a 10-0 Duke run in the second half, taking a late lead and overall making things hard for the Blue Devils, with the exception of the final shot. "There's a burden that's placed on (Barrett) and Zion in that situation, because they know they have to carry more", Krzyzewski said. "It happened, we miscommunicated on defense and we have to move on".
