Zion Williamson Just Threw Down A Powerful Slam After Going Coast-To-Coast vs. Virginia

Zion Williamson powers home a massive dunk against Virginia.

However today's headline battle between Duke and Virginia goes, odds were that there'd be a few incredible Zion Williamson highlights.

Moments ago the phenom forward had one of his best plays of the year.

With Duke up three, Williamson corralled a rebound off a Virginia miss, and took off up court.

The big man warded off a few Cavaliers at mid-court, split defenders, and skied for a huge slam, drawing a foul.

He missed a free throw, but followed the play up with a pair of jumpers and another one from the line to make it seven straight points.

Still, the coast-to-coast slam against one of college basketball's elite teams is the one people on Twitter are still talking about.

Zion leads all scorers with 12 points with about five minutes left in the first half.

Led by Zion Williamson, Duke holds a 31-26 lead at home against Virginia.

The Blue Devils are looking to bounce back from Monday's loss against Syracuse by handing Virginia its first loss of the season.

Duke is without key starter Tre Jones, the team's freshman point guard and an elite defensive player. With Zion playing the way he is so far, though, Duke can play with absolutely anyone.
