No. 8 Duke Holds Off Florida State 70-56

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Jon Scheyer scored 22 points, Kyle Singler added 20 and No. 8 Duke held off Florida State 70-56 on Wednesday night

The Blue Devils (17-3, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) shot 43 percent against the nation's toughest field-goal percentage defense and forced 22 turnovers but needed a late 15-4 run to seal their 14th straight win at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Solomon Alabi had 14 points and 10 rebounds and Chris Singleton added 14 points for the Seminoles (15-5, 3-3). They outrebounded the Blue Devils 40-30 and held them without a field goal for more than six minutes to erase most of a 16-point deficit, but were denied their second straight victory against a Top 25 opponent.

Singleton made things interesting late, hitting a free throw to make it 51-47 with 8:56 left, before the Blue Devils pulled away down the stretch with seven straight points.
