Syracuse upsets No. 1 Duke 95-91 in OT after Jones' injury

They got the ball back with 2.7 seconds left after Duke couldn't get a shot off. Hughes took the inbounds pass and initially dropped it before taking three dribbles and flinging it from three-quarter court.

With FSU ranked No. 13 and Duke No. 1, the game was one of the most heavily anticipated Seminole games in school history, and the play on the court lived up to the billing. He has turned the ball over just 14 times in 14 games this season.

Kabengele led the Seminoles with 13 points in the first half; he also had eight rebounds, a blocked shot and two steals.

Jones left Monday's game against the Orange only 5 minutes and 35 seconds into the contest and did not return, suffering a shoulder injury that kept him out for the remaining 40 minutes and change.

Update, 9:24: the unranked Syracuse Orange have knocked off the number 1 ranked Duke Blue Devils, 95 to 91.

"I have five guys who hadn't been in that atmosphere up in Virginia, and we didn't fare so well", he said. Barrett, who had 19 second-half points, then hit the first of two free throws with five seconds left.

Duke (14-2, 3-1 in ACC) made just one shot - an Alex O'Connell 3-pointer - over the first three minutes of overtime and Syracuse built a 93-88 lead.

He suffered from double vision and sat on the bench in the second half but Krzyzewski said it's possible that Williamson will play in Duke's next game against Syracuse. Fellow freshmen RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish stepped up to keep Duke int he game, but a late Reddish error gave Florida State a golden chance at a signature win. Duke will simply need to survive until he can get back and hope that the other pieces can step into larger roles.

"There's a burden that's placed on [Barrett] and Zion in that situation", Krzyzewski said, "because they know they have to carry more".

"There are bumps in the road along the way for a lot of people", Krzyzewski said in the aftermath of the loss, calling it "a very hard night for our basketball program and our team". And this time they fell just short.

Alex O'Connell stepped up with 16 points, but he doesn't come close to matching Jones' ability on the defensive end.

"It wasn't like a new look for us", Williamson said of Barrett playing the point. And they are going to continue to get better. Dolezaj was only able to play 12 minutes and went scoreless in the ballgame. "For this game, are you kidding, especially with the athleticism we're facing?" The 12th-ranked Tar Heels won at No. 15 North Carolina State on Tuesday despite committing 23 turnovers, which matched a season-high set in the December win against Gonzaga.
