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.

With just 15 seconds left in a tie game and one second remaining on the shot clock, Reddish fouled Florida State's PJ Savoy on an attempted three to give Savoy three foul shots. Savoy missed the first, but made the next two to put the Seminoles up 78-76.

On the other end, RJ Barrett drew a foul with five seconds left - but missed his second free throw. A scramble for the rebound ended with a Florida State player trying to throw the ball off an opponent under the bucket, but officials ruled that the ball came off Florida State after a lengthy review.

Coach K had Barrett flash to the ball to draw the attention of defenders, while two other Duke players crashed the lane. Reddish, with no one paying attention to him, ran across the court to the wing, and Tre Jones made a perfect pass around 7-foot-4 center Christ Koumadje.
