On March 1, 2006, the Florida State Seminoles upset top ranked Duke- leaving a sea of students across the court, and making headlines...

This may look like de ja vu... Fast forward five years, and this was the familiar scene at Wednesday night's 66-61 victory over the top ranked team in the country and snapping the blue devils 25 game winning streak.

Last night's win marks #3 for Coach Hamilton, as the head coach has racked up home wins against the Blue Devils in 2003, 2006, 2011.

"Obviously I was extremely proud of our players, that they were able to regroup after playing two games that we felt we didn't play very well and then to come back home after being away from home for 28 days" says Leonard Hamilton.

The Seminoles showed a confidence that fans and other teams hadn't seen all year, a confidence that helped them put points on the board.

"How do you prepare for something you haven't seen? you know what I mean, like they were that good." Says Duke Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski.

" The intensity of the game from the beginning to the end, it was rachted it up so, i mean it felt good out there." adds senior Derwin Kitchen.

With a 2-1 record in the ACC, the next step is at home against North Carolina State on Saturday.

"That's definitely our main focus right now is to not trip ourselves up, you know these next couple of days in practice its all about focus and execution." adds Junior Bernard James.
