NOTES: If there ever is a good time to visit Duke, this isn't it. The Blue Devils are coming off an 85-83 loss to North Carolina at Cameron on Thursday night, just their third ACC loss in their past 56 games. The Seminoles got their first league win against Clemson on Wednesday. ... With Williams, Battier, senior G/F Nate James, sophomore G/F Mike Dunleavy and freshman G Chris Duhon, the Blue Devils lead the ACC in three-point shooting (.406 percentage). FSU is last in the league in three-point field-goal percentage defense (.404). ... On Jan. 4 in Tallahassee, Duke hit 15 of 32 three-pointers (.469) and cruised to a 99-72 win. ... The Blue Devils have won 12 straight against FSU and lead the series 18-2. The Seminoles are 0-10 at Duke, the lone ACC town in which they are winless. ... Former Duke coach Vic Bubas, who led the Blue Devils to three Final Fours (1963, '64 and '66), will have the concourse at Cameron named in his honor during halftime.
