Game of the Night:
Florida State- 66 Duke- 61
Seminole guard Derwin Kitchen put the team on his back. He played with fire and aggression, scoring 22 points and pulling down 10 rebounds.
Duke shot just 31-percent from the field.
The Seminoles hit five consecutive free-throws down the stretch to preserve the win.
It’s the third time that Florida State beat Duke at home since 2002. The win also snaps the Blue Devils 25-game winning streak.
UPSET OF THE NIGHT- LOOK ABOVE FSU OVER DUKE
- The quintessential top three of the Big East (Pitt, Syracuse and Nova) all won in convincing fashion tonight. Pitt and Syracuse on the road, and Nova over Louisville at home
- No. 2 Ohio State and No. 3 Kansas didn’t play their best basketball, but both won winnable road conference games in narrow margins. The Buckeyes defeated Michigan 68-64, and the Jayhawks took care of Iowa State 84-79.
- No 6. San Diego State did what it had to do, win at home over UNLV in Mountain West play 55-49.
- How about Colorado, a sleeper in the Big 12, picking up a nice road win over No. 20 Kansas State 74-66.
- No. 13 Texas A&M destroys Oklahoma State at home 71-48.
Top Three Performances
- Derwin Kitchen (FSU) 22 pts, 10 reb in win over No. 1 Duke
- Kawhi Leonard (SDSU) 15 pts 17 reb in 55-49 win over UNLV

I currently work for the Sports Network. It's the best job ever! I am a 2010 graduate of Temple University where I majored in broadcast journalism, I LOVE SPORTS! That's why I am here. I have a vast knowledge and want to share my athletic intelligence with the world. Some people like to spend their time shooting down aliens in Halo; I like to spend my time watching sports, current and old. It's my passion! I got asked one time how I can watch a game over again when I already know the outcome. 5 minutes later, he's watching Happy Gilmore reciting all of the lines from the movie. Hypocrite! As for my favorite sports teams, I've been a lifelong Philadelphia sports fan. My favorite athlete is Allen Iverson. He didn't like practice that much, but when it came to gametime, no one let it all out on the floor like Iverson. He is absolutely beloved in the city of Brotherly Love. For college athletics, obviously I pay close attention to Temple. (Yes, football too) Even before I stepped foot on Temple's campus for the 1st time in 2005, I was a fan. Oh the good old days of John Chaney! Some other tidbits about myself, I love cheesesteaks, I hydrate myself with Welch's Grape Juice and Snapple. I love the HBO show Entourage. Also, when is Kenny Powers making his much anticipated return in Eastbound and Down!
