The No. 7 Duke Blue Devils added a marquee win to their resume as they battle for an ACC crown and a potential No. 1 seed in the NCAA men's tournament.

Duke defeated the No. 8 Florida State Seminoles 70-65 in Monday's conference showdown at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Tre Jones led the way, helping his team improve to 21-3 overall and 11-2 in the ACC, which is second place behind the 12-1 Louisville Cardinals.

Matthew Hurt took advantage of a questionable call and hit four critical free throws in the waning seconds to secure the win.
