Duke vs. Florida State - 3/16/19 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Duke vs. Florida State - 3/16/19 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The Seminoles will play the victor of Friday's late Duke-North Carolina semifinal.

"He put on his Superman jersey", UNC coach Roy Williams said.

"We had a lot of issues in that particular game", said Florida State Head Coach Leonard Hamilton.

That sent Duke's bench into celebration and leaving a disappointed White crouching at midcourt in an arena filled with a buzzing instate crowd. And to make matters all the sweeter, the Blue Devils clinched the W over their bitter rivals, the North Carolina Tar Heels.

North Carolina led by 13 in the first half and 71-67 with less than three minutes left but couldn't hold on. Trailing 73-72 with 32 seconds remaining, Williamson missed a contested shot in the post but beat everyone off the floor with a second jump and tipped in his own miss.

Zion led the way for the Blue Devils with 31 points and 11 rebounds on 13-of-19 shooting and two of three from 3-point range.

Phil Cofer had 11 points and 7-foot-3 center Christ Koumadje added nine points and nine rebounds for the Seminoles, who will play the victor of No. 3 North Carolina/No. 5 Duke on Saturday night. They both looked the part, too - down to Duke's final punch that finally secured a ticket to the tournament final.

"It was tough watching the first few games, watching my brothers out there battling". "The rivalry lived up to what it was expected to be".

2 team in the country, won both games against the No. 3 Blue Devils earlier this season, however Duke was without Williamson for almost all of those bouts. He had 29 points on 13-for-13 shooting - the best performance without a miss in the event's 66-year history - in the quarterfinal win against Syracuse. The Blue Devils will very likely be playing for the chance to claim the top overall seed in the NCAA tournament should they win, meaning they would get a favorable road to Minneapolis, first playing in Columbia, S.C., before traveling to Washington for the East Regional. In that game, Williamson was forced to leave early with an eye injury, opening the door for fellow freshmen R.J. Barrett and Cam Reddish to shine. That's the first time Virginia has lost all season to a team that isn't Duke. The Tar Heels proved they're on level footing with the Blue Devils with Williamson back, but couldn't figure out a way to close it out.

Florida State (27-6) has won 14 of its last 15 games with a roster that includes the core of last year's Elite Eight squad.
