Dawkins and Duke shoot down Florida State

Andre Dawkins couldn't miss, and his three- point touch rubbed off on his teammates.

Dawkins drained six treys as part of a 22-point night, and No. 5 Duke made 13 three-pointers in a 74-66 victory over 15th-ranked Florida State at the Tucker Center.

The Blue Devils (24-4, 11-2 ACC) kept pace with North Carolina in the ACC standings behind strong shooting and four players in double figures. Austin Rivers added 20 points, Ryan Kelly scored 13 and Miles Plumlee added 10. Duke avenged a 76-73 loss to the Seminoles back in late January and won its fifth straight game.

Michael Snaer led Florida State (19-8, 10-3) with 18 points, while Bernard James added 13 points and nine rebounds. The Seminoles main sharpshooter, Deividas Dulkys, didn't join in the three-point parade, scoring just three points on 1-of-6 shooting.
