On Saturday afternoon, the No. 1 Duke Blue Devils and No. 13 Florida State Seminoles met for an ACC showdown between two of the best college basketball teams in the country.
Duke took the floor as the unquestioned No. 1 team in the country, with a trio of star freshmen – led of course by Zion Williamson and R.J. Barrett. During the first half of the game against Florida State, Williamson was poked in the eye.
Zion just sat for the first 7 minutes of the half.
ESPN reporting that he’s been held out “for now.”
I have no idea what that means but, if he comes back in at any point now, it’ll be weird and confusing.

Although he returned to the game in the first half, Williamson has yet to take the floor in the second half with just over three minutes left.
We’ll have to wait and see if he makes a late entrance to the game, but it looks like the Blue Devils medical staff will keep the star on the sideline. Barrett has been the best player on the floor for either team and leads all scorers with 29 points.
Duke holds a 74-72 lead with just over three minutes left in the game.
