Coach K Provides Update For Zion Williamson Before Duke-North Carolina Game

Zion Williamson Duke

Zion Williamson Duke

He sustained the knee injury just over 30 seconds into the game when he lost possession of the ball and slipped, causing him to rip through his shoe.

Meanwhile, the Blue Devils have amassed five national titles ('91, '92, '01, '10, '15).

Jordan Murphy had all 13 of his points in the first half to go with 14 rebounds, with fellow seniors Dupree McBrayer (10 points, four rebounds, four assists) and Matz Stockman (nine points, six rebounds, seven blocks) also playing key roles for the Gophers (19-11, 9-10).

The Duke Blue Devils will be without their most talented player once again.

The 18-year-old is averaging 21.6 points and 8.8 rebounds in 26 appearances this season.

"We're not concerned about that", Krzyzewski said. Krzyzewski said the message was that everyone plays a role in improving Duke's defense against UNC, not just the interior players like Marques Bolden and Javin DeLaurier. Duke bled the shot clock before the left-handed Barrett hit a right-handed jumper in the lane to put the Blue Devils up by three with 17.3 seconds remaining.

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

Trump told the audience at CPAC he believes he made the right decision by leaving the summit without a deal. The Opposition has launched in the US Congress, a massive investigation against President Donald Trump .

The news on his injury is more and more encouraging, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said after the game. 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.

Duke will need all its healthy limbs on deck to avoid getting swept by North Carolina in the regular season for the first time since 2009. "I'd be surprised if he's not ready by the ACC tournament".

This game will mark the 250th between the two programs.

Duke struggled to contain the Tar Heels' two stars, Luke Maye and Cameron Johnson, who combined for 56 points, and did it without Johnson-a 47.9 percent shooter from long distance-even making a 3-pointer. At one point, Wake led by as many as 10, and it was only a pair of misses near the basket at the end that allowed Duke to escape with the win.

"He's so team-oriented, " Krzyzewski explained.
