Watch: Zion Williamson beats UNC with great effort on putback
Zion Williamson was the difference-maker in Duke’s 74-73 win over North Carolina on Friday night, including on the game-winning basket.
Williamson went up for a shot with Duke down 73-72 in the final minute and missed. He followed his shot though and out-rebounded three Tar Heels for the ball, and then made the putback.

UNC was unable to score on its next two possessions, making that basket by Zion the last score of the game.
Williamson was sensational in the game. He went 13/19 for 31 points and 11 rebounds. He even went 2/3 on threes. As if his draft stock weren’t already high enough, he’s further cementing himself as the best player in college basketball.
