Duke's recent skid ends, emphatically, 20-25, 25-20, 25-21, 25-21. FSU's unbeaten run to start the season ends at 24.

Duke's first-ever win against a top five team.

Obeime with 18 kills, followed Sklar with 17, including a monster momentum-swinger out of the back row midway through the third set. Send it IN, Emily!

Chop this.

Well, there was one guy in the stands who might have been dancing to "Rock Lobster." But mostly there was sensational defense. Duke rang up 78 digs and nine blocks, and held FSU to a .177 hitting average (.089 less than their season average).

It occurs to me that there might be some youngsters out there who don't know the origin of "send it in."

What a great start to the weekend! Here's hoping that the rest of the Duke teams in action this weekend meet with similar success. Congrats to the volleyball team!
