Watch: This block by Zion Williamson was off the charts
Calling Zion Williamson just a dunker is not only inaccurate, but it’s also downright disrespectful to the other incredible parts of his game. Just take a look at what he did against Virginia on Saturday.
Williamson put together a highlight-reel block late in the second half. He came halfway across the court for a close-out and leaped to reject De’Andre Hunter’s 3-point attempt:

Not only was Williamson’s physical leaping ability on display, but this is a great example of his hustle and effort. How many players would have given up on that play? How many would have closed with an all-out effort to go for the block? He truly is a special athlete with a great motor.
Williamson had 18 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 blocks and 3 steals in the game. It doesn’t get much more complete than that.
