TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Road wins have been particularly hard to come by this year in the ACC, but the Blue Devils looked plenty comfortable at Florida State. Duke made shots at its best rate all year in a 79-60 victory. The 19-point win is the biggest road victory in the ACC this year.
“You've got to give Duke credit,” Florida State head coach Leonard Hamilton said. “They came in and they just made shots. I mean, my goodness, it seemed like they were raining 3s.”
No. 5 Duke (19-2, 6-2 in the ACC) shot a season-high 60.8 percent from the field and made 11-of-18 shots (61.1 percent) from 3-point range. Seth Curry led the Blue Devils with 21 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the floor (5-of-7 from deep), and Quinn Cook added 18 thanks in large part to 4-of-6 shooting from downtown.
