Zion misses 4th straight game with knee sprain

Zion Williamson Duke

Without having to face Williamson, North Carolina would be a long way toward its first regular-season sweep of Duke since 2009.

North Carolina struggled shooting the ball from 3-point range in the February 20 matchup making just two of its twenty attempts and if Duke wants to have success on the road, the Blue Devils will have to try and run the Heels off the 3-point line. He suffered the injury 36 seconds into the Blue Devils' 88-72 loss to North Carolina at Cameron Indoor.

Head coach Mike Krzyzewski told reporters after the Wake Forest game that Williamson has been doing some "basketball stuff" and should be ready for next week's ACC Tournament. The North Carolina Tar Heels are arguably the best rebounding team in the country and will once again have a field day in the paint when Duke doesn't have its big guy. RJ Barrett is averaging 23.3 points and 7.4 rebounds while Zion Williamson is averaging 21.6 points and 2.2 assists.

The Australian college star and National Basketball Association prospect nearly cost his Duke Blue Devils the game against Wake Forest on Wednesday, committing a crucial turnover in the game's dying seconds.

I haven't picked against the Blue Devils this season, why would I start on the final game of the regular season?

Kelly Arrested and Back in Jail
You guys are believing this f-king façade that our parents are saying. "If you can't see that, you're ignorant and you're stupid". She claimed that her parents "know that I've been well taken care of" and said that her father is "a manipulative liar".

Krzyzewski had suggested all week it was unlikely Williamson would see the court, despite his returning to practice this week and showing real progress. "I don't think he'll be ready for Saturday".

UNC coach Roy Williams on Thursday said the Tar Heels (25-5, 15-2) were preparing as if Williamson would play, but "why worry about that part of it?"

He's the most dominating player in America, and he changes the whole landscape of the game whenever he's playing.

Duke's Zion Williamson, second from right, injured his knee on Feb 20. The Tar Heels are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games following a ATS win, 9-4 ATS in their last 13 vs.

They aren't a team full of scorers, though, and Krzyzewski said he's enthusiastic about his star's impending return and its potential impact on the Duke offense.
