Syracuse Orange took point spread against Duke as a sign of disrespect

"Obviously they were extremely disappointed".

And coach Mike Krzyzewski has until Saturday - when No. 4 Virginia visits the Blue Devils (14-2, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) - to come up with a backup plan.

"This was a very hard night for our basketball program and our team", Krzyzewski said.

"We've got to be sure we recharge our batteries and get focused again". "We're competitors, so we took that really personal". He's better now. So hopefully he'll be able to play on Monday.

Reddish finished with 23 points, while senior Mfiondu Kabengele led FSU with 24 points and 10 rebounds. Romeo Langford had a team-high 18 points for the Hoosiers (12-5, 3-3), who had a season-low scoring output.

Duke has won eight straight games and has started off ACC play with easy wins over Clemson and Wake Forest. Duke will likely eventually solve FSU, but I'm betting it won't be until the hosts at least cover the spread.

But despite Trump's refusal to even entertain a question about her remark, Ocasio-Cortez seems to be calling it a victory. The powerful committee also oversees the US housing market, insurance and global finance sectors, among other areas.

"They rose", he said of Barrett and Reddish. "I believe I had the right mindset and my goal going into every game is to just bring energy and whatever happens, happens".

This marks the fourth consecutive meeting in the series with each team ranked in the AP Top 25, and the lowest combined ranking (14) in the series since No. 2 Duke defeated No. 13 Florida State, 75-63, in Tallahassee on January 10, 1998.

Barrett's 3 pulled the Blue Devils to 93-91, but Chukwu countered with a dunk off a lob from Howard to make it a four-point game. The broadcast showed Williamson making no complaints and just heading back on defense. The Panthers aren't very efficient offensively, but they do a good job of attacking the basket and crashing the offensive glass to help generate some extra points. The fact that they tried to do that, I like that.

The hulking Williamson has a strong case as the nation's best college basketball player and the vision issue that sidelined him for the second half of Saturday's 80-78 win at Florida State was certainly cause for concern until he was back in the starting lineup against Syracuse. In the short stint he was available, they turned the ball over three times and looked jumbled and out of sorts on offense. "I think they were kind of fixated on RJ [Barrett, who had 32 points] and it allowed him to get open and then he knocked it down".

Reddish and Barrett combined to score 55 points, tied for their most this season (also combined for 55 vs. Kentucky in the Champions Classic). For this game - are you kidding?

As for the six-foot-ten-inch Kabengele, he averages 11.2 points and 4.9 rebounds per game and does most of his damage from inside of the 3-point arc, shooting 48.7% from the floor and only 21.4% from 3-point range. More broadly, Monday night provided a reminder that Duke's eye-popping talent can often distract from its thin bench by comparison-even if only elite teams (like Gonzaga) and outlier performances (like Syracuse's) ever get the chance to take advantage.
