Duke buzzer

The Duke Blue Devils beat the Florida State Seminoles on Saturday in a battle of two of the best teams in college basketball.
Freshman Cam Reddish won the game for Duke with a wide-open buzzer-beater after a defensive lapse from Florida State.
Reddish finished the game with 23 points, with fellow freshman R.J. Barrett adding 32 points of his own for the Blue Devils.

The top-ranked Duke Blue Devils rallied to beat No. 13 Florida State on Saturday thanks to a bit of blown defense from the Seminoles.

Facing a tough test and daunting home crowd at Florida State, Duke was left to finish the game without freshman standout Zion Williamson, who missed the second half after being poked in the eye.

Ouch 😵

Thankfully for the Blue Devils, Williamson is just one of three Duke freshman projected to be among the top 10 picks in the 2019 NBA Draft, and on Saturday, it was Cam Reddish who would play hero for the road team.

Down 78-77 with just two seconds remaining, the Blue Devils needed a big shot to escape with a win. Thanks to a defensive lapse from Florida State, it would come easier than expected.

Reddish received the inbounds pass from under the basket outside the arc, completely free from the Seminoles defense, and drilled the buzzer-beater with ease.

Reddish finished the game with 23 points, with fellow freshman standout R.J. Barrett adding 32 points of his own to lead the Blue Devils.

After the game, Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski said that Williamson won’t have to miss any more time due to the eye injury. Even if he did, Reddish and Barrett made clear that the Blue Devils are still a force to be reckoned regardless.
