Zion Williamson and Duke get back on track by trouncing Indiana

November 28, 2018

The Knicks had their three-game winning streak snapped Tuesday night, but that just means it’s time to keep an eye on Zion again.

Zion Williamson scored 25 points, RJ Barrett added 22 and No. 3 Duke routed Indiana 90-69 on Tuesday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

Tre Jones added 15 points and a fourth Duke freshman — Cameron Reddish — finished with 13 to help the Blue Devils (6-1) bounce back from their lone loss and win one of the made-for-TV event’s glamour matchups. This one featured a handful of potential NBA lottery picks — the Duke freshmen and Indiana’s Romeo Langford — on the floor at the same time.

Williamson, as he is wont to do, had a highlight reel windmill dunk after a steal at midcourt. He also soared for two emphatic swats, sending one a few rows out of bounds.

Duke looked nothing like the group that lost to Gonzaga last week in the Maui Invitational final. The Blue Devils never trailed, shot 52 percent and turned a season-worst 20 turnovers by Indiana into 24 points.

Langford scored 13 points on 3-of-15 shooting to lead the Hoosiers (5-2). But No. 2 scorer Juwan Morgan, who averages 17.5 points, was in foul trouble all night and finished with eight. Indiana trailed by 24 points at halftime and never got closer than 19 in the second half.
