Army vs Duke: Army was able to keep the game competitive against Duke for much of the first half, but at the end of the day the Blue Devils' talent was just too much to handle as Duke won 94-72. "The Blue Devils have three blue-chip freshmen in RJ Barrett, Zion Williamson and Cam Reddish".

Just like everyone else in the basketball world, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was left speechless after watching Duke freshman Zion Williamson put on a show on national television Tuesday night against Kentucky. The 6-foot-7, 285-pound power forward scored a game-high 27 points, grabbed a game-high 16 rebounds, blocked a game-high six shots (many several rows deep into the crowd), and dished out four assists in 32 minutes of play.

The Blue Devils' three freshman stars, led by Zion Wiliamson's stellar all-around game, finally delivered success in the second half. He also had six rebounds.

Even the National Basketball Association took notice of Duke's 118-84 dismantling of lottery pipeline Kentucky.

The Horned Frogs (2-0) were sluggish opening the season as a ranked team for the first time in 20 years, trailing by as many as 11 points before rallying to beat Cal State Bakersfield. Reddish hit another 3-pointer and Barrett scored inside.

Thomas Nelson Community College 49, Johnston CC 44: The Gators prevailed in Smithfield, N.C., as Sumintra Mohabir, De-Layce Casper and Cassidy Simmons each scored 11 for them.

(5) Virginia 76, George Washington 57: Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome scored 20 points each and Virginia rolled over George Washington, at Charlottesville, Va.

Tulane was buoyed by the debut of freshman Kevin Zhang, who had 24 points, including 10 during a second-half surge that briefly pulled the Green Wave as close as 62-56. Duke returns to Durham to take on the Army Black Knights.

"I saw some kid on Duke last night who is pretty impressive", Kerr told reporters (via The Athletic).

(10) SC 94, ALABAMA STATE 38: Te'a Cooper scored 17 points in her SC debut to lead the Gamecocks' in their opener at Alabama State (0-2).

Duke maintained a 44-37 lead when Williamson hit one of two free throws at 3:12 before Army scored the game's next five points, taking advantage of Duke defensive lapses.
