Duke 78, Florida State 56
Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski • Won his 900th game at Duke, becoming only the second coach in NCAA history to win 900 games at one school. Only Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim (936) has more wins at one school. • Improved his career record to 973-301 (.764), the most wins of any NCAA Division I head coach.
Team Notes: • Duke outrebounded Florida State 47-24, marking the second straight game Duke has outrebounded its opponent by double digits. Duke’s +23 rebounding margin was a season high and Duke’s largest since outrebounding Boston College 45-21 (+24) on Feb. 19, 2012. • Duke hauled in a season-high 27 offensive boards, including a combined 17 from Jabari Parker (10) and Marshall Plumlee (7). Duke finished with more offensive rebounds than Florida State had total rebounds (24). Parker’s 10 offensive rebounds tied for the most by a Duke player in the Coach K era and the fourth most in school history. Elton Brand also had 10 offensive rebounds against Florida State on Feb. 17, 1999. • Duke scored 29 second-chance points, marking the second straight game – and third time this season – that Duke has gotten at least 20 points on second-chance opportunities. Jabari Parker’s 10 offensive boards led to 12 points, while Marshall Plumlee’s seven offensive rebounds set up seven points. • Duke improved its home winning streak to 28 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the nation. Duke is 12-0 in Cameron Indoor Stadium this season. • Florida State held a 15-13 rebounding advantage over the first 13:30, but Duke posted a 29-13 advantage on the glass the rest of the way. • Duke held Florida State to 56 points, marking the seventh straight home game in which Duke has held the opposition under 70 points. Duke is outscoring the opposition 86.7-66.0 (+20.7) at home this season. • After scoring just 15 points in the first 10 minutes of play, Duke outscored Florida State 28-13 over the final 10 minutes of the first period to build a 43-25 halftime lead. Duke has led at halftime in 19 of 20 games this season and has yet to trail at the break. • Duke used the starting lineup of Quinn Cook, Andre Dawkins, Amile Jefferson, Matt Jones and Jabari Parker for the first time this season. Dawkins was a late addition to the lineup in place of Hood. Cook and Parker have started all 20 games in 2013-14. • Duke played its 238th consecutive game as a ranked team.

Jabari Parker • Logged his team-leading sixth double-double of the season, finishing with 14 points and 14 rebounds.
