Zion Williamson's first trip to Madison Square Garden was a memorable one, and not just for what he was able to do on the court.

Williamson put up 17 points and 13 rebounds, including several highlight-reel plays, but he also fouled out of Duke's game against Texas Tech on a controversial call with 3:51 remaining.

Williamson was pushing the ball on a fast break when he spun and tried to finish in traffic. He was called for charging.

Needless to say, Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski was not happy with the call.

The foul drew plenty of ire on Twitter, including from those who aren't rooting for the Blue Devils.

Despite Williamson fouling out, Duke still leads Texas Tech by seven with 2:26 left.
