Derwin Kitchen
FLORIDA STATE 66, #1 DUKE 61 – Derwin Kitchen scored 22 points, Chris Singleton added 18 and Florida State snapped No. 1 Duke's 25-game winning streak with a 66-61 victory Wednesday night.

Florida State (12-5, 2-1 ACC) made five free throws in the final 33 seconds to hold off the defending national champions. It was the third time in the last nine seasons that the Seminoles have upset a top-ranked Duke team at home.

The Seminoles led 28-24 at halftime and by as many as 11 early in the second half, but the game was tight to the finish.

Kyle Singler scored 20 points and Nolan Smith had 19 for the Blue Devils (15-1, 2-1), who shot just 31.1 percent.
