Duke Basketball: Blue Devils get first road test against struggling Wake

HIGHLIGHTS: Duke Basketball Star Zion Williamson Lights Up Wake Forest

Williamson's latest aerial act came in the second half of the Blue Devils' 87-68 thumping of the Tigers on Saturday at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, N.C. Barrett is posting 22.9 points and 6.9 rebounds per bout for the Blue Devils.

Zion Williamson missed a dunk against Wake Forest on Tuesday night, but he did just about everything else in another dominant Duke win.

Virginia junior guard Kyle Guy has been recognized as the Atlantic Coast Conference Basketball Player of the Week, while Duke's Zion Williamson earned ACC Freshman of Week accolades.

But in addition to the scoring, Williamson had 10 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals and a blocked shot, while dominating the paint on both ends of the court. R.J. Barrett contributed 13 points, nine boards and four assists. Marques Bolden accounted for 11 points plus five caroms as a reserve.

Williamson had a game-high 25 points and 10 rebounds in the win.

Japanese Fighter Thrashed by Mayweather Names Condition for Bout With McGregor
Unsurprisingly, it did not take Tenshin Nasukawa long to respond to this lucrative suggestion from McGregor. Many believe that the fight was fixed as Nasukawa was dropped multiple times and left the arena crying.

Wake Forest lost by a count of 92-79 at Georgia Tech Saturday in its ACC opener as it dropped to 7-6 and 0-1 on the season.

Williamson made his case against the Demon Deacons. Brandon Childress paced the Demon Deacons with 28 points on 8-of-15 shooting including 7-of-10 from 3-point range plus 5-of-5 at the free throw line. "Overall, he was good, but he has to keep learning, as we are only fourteen games in".

There's a point in every basketball game where the superior talent will take over and that is what Duke has over Wake Forest.

Williamson laughed about the final stat line, suggesting even he was a bit surprised by the complete performance, but guard Tre Jones said this was the type of performance the team has been used to seeing behind the scenes. The spread is big, but we've seen Duke take the air out of many arenas already.
