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

LeBron James is a huge basketball fan and his Los Angeles Lakers are on an Eastern Conference road trip, so he chose to head to Charlottesville, Virginia to watch Zion Williamson and the Duke Blue Devils against the No. 3 ranked Virginia Cavaliers.

Duke has become one of the favorites to win the NCAA tournament this spring behind freshman stars Zion WIlliamson, R.J. Barrett, Tre Jones and Cam Reddish.

Mixed in there, along with the 2 of 14 against Virginia, was a 2 of 21 day against Georgia Tech and a 3 of 20 game against Texas Tech. "It's not just if you're really tight on them, they certainly can beat you off the dribble and get on the glass, but they weren't missing many".

Bennett thought his team might have over-adjusted by focusing too much on trying to close off the inside, but his counterpart, Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, thought it was at least as much a case of his own players recognizing the strategy change. They gathered themselves and had several runs that energized the crowd, but a team that's 20-0 against everyone else never could get over the hump against arguably the country's most talented squad.

"I didn't notice until probably the second half". "That little bit of room - they took advantage of it without any kind of coaching".

The Blue Devils have allowed just 57.5 points over the last four games - fifth-best in power conferences over that span.

The nomination of the king's older sister, who has starred in soap operas and an action movie was a shocking move. The party said it complied "with the royal command with loyalty to the king and all members of the royal family".

Duke has recorded a steal on 13.9 percent of opponents' possessions - best percentage in the NCAA.

No college basketball team in the country would have beaten Duke on Saturday night.

Duke played that game without Jones, who sat with a shoulder injury. Some loose turnovers that led to the breakaways.

The Cavaliers, meanwhile, had been dealing with uncertainty surrounding their starting point guard in Jerome.

Jerome had two field goals in the first half and didn't appear bothered by his back, but it was Guy who rose up in the final minutes to help Virginia claw back from a 14-point deficit to trail 39-35 at halftime even though the Blue Devils, ranked 13th in the ACC in three-point shooting, went 8 for 11 from beyond the arc. Duke's home games in this stretch are back-to-back rivalry match-ups versus NC State and No. 8 North Carolina... Both these teams were very bad from 3-point range the first time around. "We didn't know whether he was going to play or not, but it was definitely a big loss".
