Box Score: Duke 75, FSU 70

The No. 15 Florida State men's basketball team stumbled out of the gate and never really threatened No. 17 Duke in a 75-70 loss Tuesday night at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, N.C.

The Seminoles (23-7, 11-6 ACC) fell behind, 34-23, at halftime and trailed by double-digits for most of the second half.

Duke (23-7, 11-6) was led by freshman guard Frank Jackson's 22 points, as well as 17 from sophomore Luke Kennard. The Blue Devils finished with four players in double-figures scoring.

FSU was led by 19 points from sophomore Dwayne Bacon and 15 from junior Xavier Rathan-Mayes.

FSU finishes the regular season Saturday against visiting Miami at 4 p.m.
