Their zone defense routinely had Duke settling for 3-pointers - the Blue Devils shot 43 of them, making only nine.
Though Duke was already expected to cruise, things seemed dire for Syracuse in the early going, as the Blue Devils zoomed to a 12-0 lead in their home building. The Apple Valley, Minn., native left the floor clutching his wrist and did not return for the rest of the first half due to an unspecified shoulder injury. Florida State is 1-9 ATS in its last 10 games versus the ACC.
"It wasn't like a new look for us", Williamson said of Barrett playing the point.
The Blue Devils will take Tuesday off before resuming practice Wednesday. But Duke's stunning 95-91 overtime stumble to Syracuse proved that another freshman on the roster, point guard Tre Jones, may be the most important player for the Blue Devils and their chase for a national title this season.
RJ Barrett added 23 points for Duke.

That being the case, the two day collection of the Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam-starrer turns out to be around Rs 20 crore. Directed by Aditya Dhar , it also featured Yami Gautam , Kirti Kulhari, Mohit Raina and Paresh Rawal in key roles.
Not even a superb night from Zion Williamson could save Duke in its shorthanded state. Ironically, it's the second straight season a standout Duke freshman has left a game due to an eye injury; Marvin Bagley III suffered the same fate at the start of his 2017-18 season.
The hulking Williamson has a strong case as the nation's best college basketball player and the vision issue that sidelined him for the second half of Saturday's 80-78 win at Florida State was certainly cause for concern until he was back in the starting lineup against Syracuse. He also dished out three assists. P.J. Savoy added 10 points in 17 minutes as a reserve. All we've heard about all season is how Duke is so great and can just dominate everybody. 1 Duke visits No. 13 FSU to headline ACC weekend slateAP Photo FLMW112, FLMW110, NCCB117, GAJB108, MAMS107Eds: With AP Photos.
Duke was saved from just their second loss of the season on Saturday by a three-pointer by Cam Reddish. In the toughest conference in the country, the Blue Devils will now be tested once again as they welcome a tough Syracuse Orange team to Cameron Indoor Stadium on Monday night.
The Blue Devils' immediate problem is Saturday's primetime showdown at home against Virginia, in which Cavaliers guards Ty Jerome and Kyle Guy should be able to pick Duke apart if they aren't being pestered by defense on Jones's level.
FSU has had success against top-ranked teams in recent years, with victories over No. 1 North Carolina in the semifinals of the 2009 ACC Tournament and during the 2010-11 regular season, and against Duke in Tallahassee on January 6, 2002.
