College basketball preview: No. 24 Florida State Seminoles at No. 7 Duke

No. 24 FSU at No. 7 Duke

When/where: 8 tonight; Cameron Indoor Stadium, Durham, N.C.

Radio: 1040-AM

Records: FSU 22-7, 9-5 ACC; Duke 24-5, 10-4

Notable: The Seminoles can still finish as high as second, matching a spot they reached in their first two years in the league (1991-92 and 1992-93). They haven't been better than fifth or won more than nine league games since. A big part of that has been the Seminoles' 10-4 record away from home (including three neutral-site wins), four of which have come in the ACC. … The Blue Devils have been juggling their backcourt, and, five games ago, they moved Jon Scheyer to point guard and inserted freshman Elliott Williams at shooting guard. That has improved their defense, and they have won the past four. … G Nolan Smith, who had been the starter much of the year at the point, remains out after a concussion against Maryland last week. … Duke leads the series 27-6.
