Zion is an absolute freak of nature.
Duke Blue Devils’ star freshman Zion Williamson had twitter going crazy on Tuesday night, and it wasn’t from one of his patented jaw-dropping dunks or high-flying blocks.
Amid the Blue Devils’ historic 23-point come-from-behind victory over Louisville, Zion got tangled up with the Cardinals’ Jordan Nwora in a battle of strength for the rock, which produced the following image of Williamson actually putting a dent in the ball with his fingers.
In addition to showing off his Monstar strength, Williamson went off for a game-high 27 points to go along with 12 rebounds as the Blue Devils overcame a 59-36 deficit with under 10 minutes to play. Duke’s improbable 71-69 victory marked the largest second-half comeback of the Coach K era.
Even Coach K had his doubts about the possibility of leaving the YUM! Center with a W.
“I did think we could play better,” he said, per ESPN. “I was positive, but I don’t know, belief. … At that point, I may have been telling them a lie.”
Williamson added, “He said he don’t coach losers, only coach winners.”
Up next for the #2 ranked Blue Devils is a home game against NC State on Saturday afternoon, followed by a Wednesday night showdown against hated rival UNC.
