It wasn't just a game of the star though. Zion Williamson absolutely carried Duke down to the final offensive rebound for the final points. But it was the game of the role player too. Duke doesn't win without Jordan Goldwire. Duke doesn't win without Antonio Vrankovic.
You can argue if Zion Williamson is having the greatest single season of any Duke player. But only Grant Hill has ever put a team entirely on his back like Zion Williamson is doing with this Duke team.
Zion Williamson had 31 points and 11 rebounds including a huge bucket in the final minute as the Duke Blue Devils beat the North Carolina Tar Heels 74-73 in the ACC seminfinal.
Duke will face Florida State in the finals on Saturday.
I always thought Carmelo Anthony and Anthony Davis were the two best college players I had ever watched...Zion Williamson has taken that position. Absolutely unreal. And he’s a likeable and humble kid who plays hard 100% of the time.
Duke advances! With Zion back and healthy the Blue Devils beat North Carolina for the first time this season 74-73 to advance to the ACC final
Zion Williamson 31 PTS 11 REB
RJ Barrett 15 PTS 8 REB 7 AST
Tre Jones 11 PTS
I’m a Tarheel fan but here is the deal. In 20 years when people are discussing who the GOAT is names like Jordan And James will be in the discussion. So will Zion Williamson. He is the next player of a generation. Check me in 2039 we will talk.
