Zion Williamson Could Be Greatest Player In Duke History, Says Dahntay Jones

ESPN's matchup predictor for Duke Kentucky NCAA Men's Basketball

Still, you can bet coach Mike Krzyzewski will try to fix his team's flaws and make Duke an even more hard matchup.

No doubt about it: Tuesday night was historic. The Blue Devils are going to dominate college basketball coverage this year, and that will get exhausting.

The Wildcats' graduate transfer forward had the same look of shock and awe that nearly everyone in attendance Tuesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse wore on their faces in the aftermath of No. 4 Duke's 118-84 rout of No. 2 Kentucky in the highly anticipated season opener for both teams. Sure, it helps to have the ingredients that Duke does, but that doesn't guarantee a great feast in March and April.

Freshman RJ Barrett led the Blue Devils with 33 points on 13-26 shooting, while freshman Zion Williamson was incredibly efficient from the floor, scoring 28 on 11-13 shooting. Freshman wing Tyler Herro added 14 points, nine rebounds and five assists. He hit - often slammed - 11 of his 13 shots (1-of-1 from three) while snagging seven boards. "You start four freshmen, and no matter how talented they are, you don't know what they're going to do in this environment against an outstanding team and a great program". Reddish added 22 points.

The fourth freshman starter on the squad, Tre Jones, directed the show (in front of his brother, former Duke point guard Tyus Jones, who was given permission to use the private jet of his National Basketball Association teammate in Minnesota, Jimmy Butler, just to see his younger sibling's first official college game). In other words, he too performed his role to near perfection.

This wasn't some deal where Duke got real hot at the beginning of the game, nor was it one of those where it was a 13-point game most of the night and things fell apart at the end. And he didn't make silly mistakes (zero turnovers). Udoka Azubuike (17 points, 4 blocks) also played well in his limited minutes, and Devon Dotson (16 points, 3 assists, 3 steals) showed promise in his college debut.

Public Citizen described the drug as "five to 10 times more potent than fentanyl and 1,000 times more potent than morphine". But Dsuvia's approval comes amid controversy, with an epidemic of opioid abuse continuing to ravage the United States.

Google Pixel Slate Up For Pre-Order
The Pixel 3 is one of the first smartphones to ship with Android 9 Pie, the latest version of Google's mobile operating system. The Pixel doesn't necessarily offer the best of Android, but it is the best showcase for what Google can do right now.

And then there was Jack White.

That was especially true of R.J. Barrett, who more or less did whatever he wanted to do against Kentucky. Surprising some - not anyone here at Ball Durham - by proving to be one of the key pieces to the lethal attack, the junior forward came off the bench but played 30 minutes as a result of his providing the spark to several fast breaks with one hustle play after another.

Duke: The Blue Devils seem to have it all - athletes, scorers, defenders and rebounders.

Starting four freshmen, Duke shot 54 percent while making 12 3-pointers.

Good luck with that.
