The Duke Blue Devils flexed their muscles tonight, defeating Hartford by 30 points. Once again, Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett stole the show with their unreal athleticism.
With both players poised to be top selections in the 2019 NBA Draft, the two freshmen showed the entire world what makes them so special. While Barrett has all tools to be the next great scorer in the association, Williamson might be the most physically gifted athlete since LeBron James.
Instead of thinking ahead toward the draft, fans should enjoy watching them compete together for the Blue Devils.
During Duke’s matchup with Hartford, Williamson and Barrett brought the house down at Cameron Indoor Stadium, as the two connected on a jaw-dropping alley-oop.

Williamson could have finished with a highlight-reel dunk of his own, but he chose to be unselfish and lob the basketball off the backboard. He finished with 18 points and 12 rebounds, meanwhile Barrett had 27 points and 15 rebounds.
This dynamic duo will probably last just one season, yet they’ll make some history along the way.
