GREENSBORO, N.C.-- Haley Peters had 17 points and 13 rebounds -- including the go-ahead basket with 4:06 left -- to help sixth-ranked Duke beat No. 23 Florida State 72-66 in Saturday's Atlantic Coast Conference tournament semifinals.

Tricia Liston also scored 17 for the top-seeded Blue Devils (29-2), who never trailed yet had a tough fight all day with the fourth-seeded Seminoles (22-9).

The teams were tied with about 5 minutes left before Peters' basket started Duke's go-ahead push.

Peters, a 6-foot-3 junior, had a huge performance after managing just five points and three rebounds in Friday's quarterfinals against North Carolina State.

She finished 8-for-14 from the floor and had six offensive rebounds.

Chelsea Davis scored 17 points to lead Florida State, which was in the semifinals for only the third time in program history. All three runs have ended with losses to Duke.
