DURHAM, North Carolina (Ticker) -- Senior forward Dahntay Jones plays his final game at Cameron Indoor Stadium on Thursday night when ninth-ranked Duke hosts Florida State in an Atlantic Coast Conference rematch.
Jones is a transfer from Rutgers who spent his final two years of his career with the Blue Devils. He leads the team with a 17.2 scoring average and is shooting over 48 percent from the floor.
Duke (20-5, 10-4 ACC) is 12-0 all time at home against Florida State and is seeking to avenge a 75-70 loss to the Seminoles on February 2. Tim Pickett scored 15 points and freshman Todd Galloway added 13 to lead Florida State to its second straight home victory over Duke.
Jones had an poor game, making 1-of-10 shots and he fouled out with two points. Freshman J.J. Redick made just 5-of-18 shots for 16 points to lead the Blue Devils.
The Blue Devils enter with a 27-game home winning streak and have not lost at Cameron since Senior Day in 2001 against Maryland. Duke is 14-0 at home this season and 16-2 in games played in the state of North Carolina.
Jones, Casey Sanders and Andre Buckner are the three seniors for Duke that will be honored.
Jones scored 23 points, but fouled out and could only watch as Duke suffered a 72-71 loss at St. John's on Sunday. The Blue Devils held a 71-60 advantage with 4:045 remaining before surrendering the game's final 12 points.
Florida State (13-13, 4-11) has lost 15 straight ACC road games and likely will finish its second straight season with an 0-8 mark in conference road games. The Seminoles are playing their regular-season finale.
Pickett collected a career-high 32 points and 11 rebounds as the Seminoles snapped a three-game losing streak with Saturday's 73-59 victory over Virginia. Pickett sank six 3-pointers and Michael Joiner, a North Carolina native, added 15 points.
