Thursday morning, the Duke Blue Devils announced that their superstar freshman, Zion Williamson, is returning to action tonight in their ACC tournament opener against Syracuse. The news comes almost a month after Zion suffered a mild knee sprain against Duke rival North Carolina, in the infamous “broken shoe” game, which sparked a mild controversy of whether or not Zion should sit out the rest of the year, as he is the projected number one overall pick in the 2019 NBA draft.
In the star-studded Duke lineup, Zion has shined, averaging 21.6 points, 8.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 2.2 steals, 1.8 blocks, while shooting 68.3% from the field and displaying acts of athleticism that shake the world. From his unbelievable dunks to his explosiveness blocking shots that no one should be blocking, Zion is indeed a freak of nature.
Duke missed Zion, going 3-2 in his absence, but with his return, the Blue Devils return to championship favorites in many peoples eyes and are ready to take the college basketball world by storm.
See the Blue Devils back in action tonight against Syracuse on ESPN at 6:00 PM PT.
