Zion Williamson, at the beginning of Duke-North Carolina, was dribbling, slipped, and just destroyed his left shoe.
Williamson left the court and did not return, with Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski confirming he had suffered a mild knee sprain, with information on his recovery to be revealed later on Thursday. Williamson's highlights have become staples of "SportsCenter" and social media during his first few months at Duke.
The No. 8 North Carolina Tar Heels routed the No. 1 Blue Devils during a 88-72 matchup Wednesday night at Cameroon Indoor Stadium. "While this is an isolated occurrence, we are working to identify the issue". "We don't really know where things are right now".
Williamson extended Duke's freshman record for most 25-point games to 12, while posting his 16th 20-point game.
North Carolina scored 62 points in the paint and received 26 points from Cam Johnson. "At halftime the realization that he's not there settled in". "We won against Wake, and it was tough against Virginia, but I thought we rebounded well and it's not all about the points". "I'd rather talk about what just happened". Each of Duke's losses since November came at home after a key freshman was injured early, with point guard Tre Jones' shoulder injury leading to an overtime loss to Syracuse. So, without him on the floor, that energy is missing. An MRI was given to find out the serious of the injury, but we'll have to wait to find out the results.
Yes, it seems like, during the beatdown, one Duke player was.a whiny baby? "However long that is going to be".
