When Florida State stunned Duke last month – Michael Snaer’s shot was the definition of Dagger – it was one of those moments that signaled this season’s ACC race might be a little different.
That’s for sure.
The Seminoles (19-7, 10-2 in ACC) have lost just once since then and pulled off a first in school history with its wins at all four North Carolina schools. Duke (23-4, 10-2) has also lost just once and is tied with the ‘Noles and UNC atop the ACC.
That’s enough to make anyone excited for Thursday’s night Duke-FSU game.This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
OK, one last detail. FSU’s win didn’t sit well with Duke’s Austin Rivers, if you remember. Can’t say that’s a kid who needs extra motivation to score, but that might just do it.
