TALLAHASSEE, Fla. The Duke Blue Devils have moments where they look fallible. Losses to NC State and Miami diminish their resume.
But then Duke shows just how good they are, how dominating they can really be for 40 minutes. And it shows just how tough a matchup the Blue Devils will be for anyone in the NCAA tournament.
No. 5 Duke put on a basketball clinic Saturday afternoon, shooting 62.1 percent from the floor in the first half. The Blue Devils put up 42 points the most Florida State had allowed in the first 20 minutes of a game this season and were ahead by 20 at halftime.
Seth Curry scored 21 points knocking down five 3-pointers and Quinn Cook added 18 points as Duke crushed Florida State 79-60 at the Donald L. Tucker Center.
The Blue Devils held the Seminoles to just 28 percent shooting in the first half, and Florida States Michael Snaer had only seven points in the game.
