    DURHAM, North Carolina (Ticker) -- After a difficult road test, Duke returns home to Cameron Indoor Stadium on Saturday to take on Atlantic Coast Conference rival Florida State.

    Duke (20-1, 8-0 ACC) remained unbeaten in league play with an 83-81 triumph at Boston College on Wednesday.

    J.J. Redick scored 28 points and Shelden Williams 21 for the Blue Devils, who held an 18-point lead early in the second half before withstanding a late charge.

    Duke, which has won three straight games since suffering its only loss at Georgetown on January 21, is 14-0 all-time against Florida State here and 24-4 overall in the series.

    Florida State (13-5, 4-4) had lost three of its previous four games before posting a 69-59 home victory over Clemson on Wednesday.

    Al Thornton scored 15 points, blocked two shots and recorded two steals for the Seminoles, who made 29-of-35 free throws.
