TALLAHASSEE -- Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski makes no bones about it: His team can shoot.

"That's one of our strengths," Krzyzewski said after watching his team hit 15 three-pointers in a 99-72 victory at Florida State in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both teams Thursday night.

Jason Williams, Shane Battier and Nate James combined for 70 points as the third-ranked Blue Devils coasted to their 18th win in 19 ACC games against FSU. "If you leave us open, there is a high percentage we're going to knock it down," said Williams, who shot 6-of-10 from three-point range and finished with a game-high 26 points. "A three-pointer for us is kind of like a layup."

Florida State made 7-of-l0 from long range but didn't get nearly as many shots.

"When you play Duke, you have to pick your poison," coach Steve Robinson said. "Are you going to stop the drive, the three or the post-up game?"

SOUTH ALABAMA 70, FIU 59: Ravonte Dantzler scored 19 points and Henry Williams added 14 in a win at Florida International.
