Zion Williamson's injury in the opening seconds of Duke's game against North Carolina this evening has shaken the sports world. The five-star freshman suffered a knee injury in the opening minute and did not return.
ESPN college basketball analyst Dick Vitale has taken to social media to react to the devastating news.
Unsurprisingly, Vitale points out how crushing a Williamson injury would be to Duke's team moving forward. It's unclear at this point how serious Williamson's injury is.
"Such a major loss / status of (Zion Williamson)‘s injury vital to hopes of @DukeMBB chance of winning 6th @NCAA title under Coach K," he tweeted.
Vitale did praise some of UNC's players for how they performed in the wake of Williamson's injury.
UNC is leading Duke, 88-72, with just over a minute to play.
The Blue Devils will likely be updating the status of Williamson in the post-game press conference. Stay tuned.
