Zion Williamson ‘doubtful’ for UNC, Krzyzewski says

  • Duke vs. North Carolina guide Start time stream

The Tar Heels capitalized on Zion Williamson's knee injury on the first possession of the game to stun the Blue Devils 88-72 in Durham in the first matchup and haven't lost since, while Duke has struggled without Williamson. Beyond Jones, no other Blue Devil scored in double figures. Carolina, meanwhile, has won six straight games and has lost just once since January 13. With the star freshman on the floor, the Blue Devils' only losses have been to Gonzaga and in overtime to Syracuse, and they were the No. 1 overall seed when the NCAA Tournament released its first reveal a month ago. While Williamson has dominated highlights and mock drafts, the 6-foot-7 guard has gone about his business averaging 23.3 points per game this season, as Williamson has been sidelined the past four games due to a knee injury.

"We gave ourselves a chance", coach Danny Manning said. But he said it's more likely Williamson will return for Duke's first ACC tournament game on March 14. And the fast breaks, second shots, we have to try to do that.

"Zion actually did some basketball stuff this afternoon", Krzyzewski said after the Wake Forest game, according to GoDuke.

"Not assume, we are [getting him back]", he said. On paper, it looked like it would be No. 10. But unlike the Georgia Tech and Boston College games - in which they fell behind at halftime before pulling away for convincing victories - they could never shake the pesky Demon Deacons. "But I would be surprised if he wasn't ready by the ACC tournament".

The complaint centers on federal regulations about how much detail candidates are required to disclose about vendor activities. A number of people also seemed unamused by the congresswoman's assessment of the "GOP amendment" she mentioned.

So the Tar Heels have amassed six legit - well, not so legit when considering players were often enrolled in bogus classes, meaning at least a couple banners should come down - national titles ('57, '82, '93, '05, '09, '17). Since then, the two programs have traveled on far different trajectories.

Williamson, the Duke coach said, is "doubtful", letting North Carolina dangle for another 22 hours.

Retiring Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade sat behind the scorer's table, and a video played on the scoreboard during a timeout featured Krzyzewski thanking the 13-time All-Star for helping the USA national team win gold medals in 2004 and '08. "He would like to play Saturday, too, if he's ready".

As for Saturday's showdown with rival North Carolina?
