Duke basketball prediction vs. Florida State

It’s basically a win-or-go-home situation for the Blue Devils.

Duke played in a game very similar to this at Cameron Indoor Stadium, needing a win for its NCAA Tournament resume in mid-February against Virginia, and emerged victorious before dropping three straight games to end the regular season.

Playing against a rested Florida State team and Duke taking the floor for the third time in as many days will catch up with the Blue Devils in the second half as the Seminoles will pull away for a comfortable victory.

Tipoff is scheduled for 6:30pm EST (ESPN) from the Greensboro Colosseum.

PREDICTION: Florida State 83, Duke 70
