TALLAHASSEE, Florida (Ticker) -- Florida State pulled out another thriller at home against Duke.
Tim Pickett had 15 points and nine rebounds and Anthony Richardson added 14 points as Florida State knocked off fifth-ranked Duke, 75-70, in an Atlantic Coast Conference matchup.
The Seminoles (11-8, 2-6) won for just the fourth time in their last 24 meetings with the Blue Devils. Florida State's back-to-back home wins against Duke come after a six-game losing streak in the series.
The Blue Devils (14-3, 4-3) fell at the site of their first loss last season. They won their first 12 games a year ago before a memorable 77-76 setback at Tallahassee Leon County Civic Center.
This time around, Florida State held a slender one-point advantage with nine seconds to play when Pickett made a pair of free throws to open a 73-70 lead.
Duke's Chris Duhon was looking to set up a teammate for a potential tying 3-pointer. But he dribbled out of bounds along the right sideline.
Off a set play, Adam Waleskowski slammed home a dunk to secure the victory for Florida State.
Freshman J.J. Redick scored 16 points, but leading scorer Dahntay Jones fouled out with just two points on 1-of-10 shooting as the Blue Devils suffered a third straight ACC road loss for the first time since 1996.
The Blue Devils were trailing by 11 just 4 1/2 minutes into the second half when Redick and Lee Melchionni nailed consecutive 3-pointers to pull Duke within 48-43.
Melchionni, who averaged 4.4 minutes in his 10 previous appearances, converted a layup with just over 13 minutes to play.
Florida State's Michael Joiner hit 1-of-2 from the line, but Nick Horvath and Daniel Ewing made back-to-back layups to tie it, 49-49, with 11:33 remaining.
However, the Seminoles responded with a 7-0 run during the next three minutes to make it 56-49.
Florida State owned a 67-62 advantage with less than two minutes to go. But freshman Sean Dockery made a free throw and a layup to pull Duke within two with 57.9 seconds left.
After each team hit a pair from the line, Waleskowski put home a baby hook to open a 71-67 advantage for Florida State.
Daniel Ewing then nailed the Blue Devils' 12th 3-pointer to slice their deficit to one with 10.7 seconds remaining and set up a nerve-racking finish.
