TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Cam Reddish hit a 3-pointer with 0.8 seconds left to lead No. 1 Duke past No. 13 Florida State, 80-78 on Saturday.

Reddish caught the ball on the wing off the inbounds pass and made a wide open 3-pointer 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.

No. 1 Duke can survive without Zion Williamson

No. 1 Duke can survive without Zion Williamson Duke walked in the rest of college basketball's shoes on Saturday, living life without Zion Williamson. That the No. 1-ranked Blue Devils won anyway is a testament to their talent. That Duke came back in the second half, with Williamson out with an eye injury, to win, 80-78, at No. 13 Florida State and quiet the Tucker Center crowd is a testament to its toughness. "With the crowd like that as much as it is against us," Duke freshman point guard Tre Jones said. "I feel like it prepares us for moments at the end of the year when we just need to come together as a team no matter what's happening out there.

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 RJ Barrett, who finished with 32 points on 10 of 19 shooting, then hit the first of two free throws with 5 seconds left. He missed the second, but the Blue Devils retained possession after a review overruled a call on the floor that the ball had gone out of bounds of a Duke player setting up Reddish's shot.


Wiilliamson got hurt when he drove to the basket. Florida State's Trent Forrest hit the freshman in the face and Williamson landed hard on the court. He stayed down for several moments covering his face. He saw a trainer and went to the locker room just before the half ended. Williamson sat on the bench for the second half, but didn't play.
