Zion WIlliamson is back for the ACC Tournament which kicks off tonight as Duke opens up against Syracuse.
The basketball world has been waiting for Zion to return since his Nike sneaker exploded 36 second into a game against North Carolina forcing him to the sidelines. Without the projected No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft leading the way, Duke has been a very mediocre 3-3.
None of that matters now as the 6-foot-7, 275-pound "8th Wonder of the World" is back.
His return, however, spells doom for the Orangeman who had a puncher’s chance of winning with Zion sidelined. With the media frenzy, excitement and inspiration that his return brings to Duke and the college basketball stage, Cuse’s chances of pulling an upset has plummeted.
Duke freshman R.J. Barrett improved his NBA stock with solid scoring performances in Zion’s absence. Coach K has a full squad again with eyes set on another National Title.
