The Daily Sauce — Jan. 20, 2022: FSU’s Hamilton Makes History in Upset of Duke

It’s Thursday, Florida State fans.

As you start to think about the weekend, see what’s in The Daily Sauce.

Lead Story

With Tuesday night’s thrilling 79-78 overtime victory over No. 6 Duke, Florida State men’s head basketball coach Leonard Hamilton made history.

The win for the Seminoles marked the 55th time in Hamilton’s career that he led an unranked team past a ranked opponent. That surpassed the legendary Bob Knight for the most during the AP Poll era.

The win was also FSU’s 13th straight victory in overtime contests. That extended an existing record. FSU will be in action again on Thursday in a matinee contest against North Florida.
