This Zion Williamson Block Is The Most Offensive Thing You’ll Ever See

Virginia definitely has been a team that consistently plays Duke tough.

Duke swept the season series with the 81-71 win.

A late surge by Virginia swung the momentum in the Cavaliers' favor, bringing the game to within four points at the conclusion of the half. On offense, the Cards average 78.6 points per game on 45.7 percent shooting (36.5% 3pt).

The Blue Devils would extend their lead to five on numerous occasions, but couldn't break it higher. "We knew nobody else was gonna win the game for us, so we just tried to keep our composure and play the rest of the 20 minutes".

Duke's credentials include three players-RJ Barrett, Zion Williamson and Cam Redish-who could be three of the first five National Basketball Association lottery picks this summer.

Add another one to the Zion Williamson highlight reel.

No. 24 Duke handled Villanova easily for a 19-9 season-opening victory at Koskinen stadium. Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome lead Virginia in scoring with 16 points each. Virginia has 44 turnovers over its past three games despite coming in first nationally in fewest turnovers (9.0). The Duke rookie still looked to have no chance of blocking the shot, except he then leapt into the air while still inside the arc and flew towards Hunter, swatting the ball with contempt.

Also in attendance at John Paul Jones Arena was former Duke star Grant Hill.

Blue Devils guard Tre Jones said he was more startled to see Rondo, one of his idols, than James. "I appreciate how hard they're competed and the fact that they want to get better".

"I didn't notice until probably the second half". He matched his career high with 33 points, featuring a 7-of-10 performance on 3-point attempts, to fuel UNC's 13-of-26 shooting from long range. The Blue Devils shot 61.9 percent from the three-point line. "It was really kind of neat to see the kids step up that way".

Just 20 seconds later, Jenner got in on the action, taking advantage of a foul on Devin Hassinger and shooting a rocket into the back of the net to force a Villanova timeout just two minutes into the first half. The Blue Devils instead expanded their lead to 52-41 on the strength of three three-pointers from Cam Reddish as part of an 11-4 push, leading to a timeout by Bennett.

Redshirt junior Haley Gorecki paced the Blue Devils with 13 points, six rebounds, six assists and four steals.
