No. 3 UNC dealt colossal blow via Florida State
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Deividas Dulkys scored a career-high 32 points as Florida State stunned No. 3 North Carolina 90-57 on Saturday, snapping the Tar Heels' nine-game winning streak.

The Seminoles (11-6, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) started the second half on a 30-8 run to take a 66-36 lead en route to their first home win over North Carolina since 2004. Florida State never trailed.

Dulkys, whose previous career-high was 22 points, was 12 of 14 from the field and 8 of 10 from 3-point range. He added four steals and a blocked shot

Harrison Barnes scored 15 points and Tyler Zeller added 14 for North Carolina (15-3, 2-1), which finished 4 of 21 from 3-point range.

He did score 32 on Harrison Barnes & his crew. Does J. Bilas still think they should be ranked no.1? I also read some funny things on ESPN:
Roy Williams asked for a DNA test on Dulkys after the game, his excuse for such a demand is that he think Dulkys is really JJ Redick
Dulkys #1 overall pick this year
that has to be JJ redick on FSU today... must have switched bodies for the day...... I'm guessing FSU needs to send a gift basket to DUKE... haha
I would trade Barnes for Dulkys
I don't how Dulkys only averages 6 points a game
who ya got dulkys, reggie miller, or larry bird?
Is Reggie Miller Playing for FSU tonight, or is that really Dulkys?
I don't call 90-57, "lucky." Actually the proper term is,"domination."
Isnt it ironic that a guy who destroyed you today name is pronounced DUKIE or is that a coincidence????
Dulkys is gonna get so much poon tonight he'll probably catch a disease
Does this mean that Dulkys should get more playing time? He dropped a boatload of points on the #3 team. And he did block 5 shots the game before this one.
Coming into today, you probably didn't know the name Deividas Dulkys. Unless you went to FSU, scouted Lituhunian players, or just watched an inordinate amount of college basketball, Dulkys was just another white guy in college basketball who came in with the main objective of shooting three pointers.

Through 16 games the 6'5" senior guard - whose name is pronounced "David Us Duel Keyys" - averaged a pedestrian 6.1 points per game in 21 minutes of run for a middling ACC club.

Beginning now, and for the interim at least, this kid's life has changed. Following Florida State's "dismantling" of No 3 North Carolina, Deividas Dulkys is Tallahassee's BMOC until otherwise noted.

Dicky V even has a Twitpic to affirm that.

Today went HAM, leading the Seminoles with 32 points on 8-10 shooting from beyond the arc. Both, as you can imagine, were career highs for the senior who has cut his teeth for Leonard Hamilton the past four seasons and 112 career games.

So who is this kid?

Well for starters, perhaps stereotyping him as "just another white guy who likes to shoot" understates his abilities. His sophomore season, Dulkys was third in the ACC in 3PT shooting percentage, and he's currently in position to challenge the current FSU record for three-pointers made in a career.

After today's game, he's 75 made three-pointers away from claiming that distinction. Somewhat of a long shot as he would have to average more than four three-pointers a game for the rest of the season, but this should at least give you some perspective of Dulkys shooting acumen.

Ranked as a top 70 player in the class of 2008 by Scout.com, Dulkys left his home country of Lithuania in 2005 to assimilate himself to the United States, improve his game, and work towards receiving a Division I scholarship. Living away from his parents and with a host family was not the easiest for Dulkys, but the opportunity to play for a high level, nationally traveling prep program was exactly what he needed to get in front of college coaches.

Currently a member of the Lithuanian national second team, it appears as though Dulkys has a long European career waiting for him following college graduation. As he continues to mature, he's also likely to find a spot on his country's national team and compete in Olympics and FIBA World Championships.

First, however, he's got plenty of work left to do trying to help get his Seminoles back to the NCAA Tournament.
