Tallahassee, FL (AP) - 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 Atlantic Coast Conference) 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.

Kitchen, a 6-foot-4 senior guard, scored 17 points in the second
half and led the Seminoles with a team-high 10 rebounds for his
second double-double of the season.

    FSU IS #1. Well, they beat somebody proving that even mediocre teams can upset good teams on any given night. So FSU fans have something to crow about, instead of dwelling on reality.
