Duke Star Zion Williamson Suffers Eye Poke During Florida State Game

  • Cam Reddish

Not only are Williamson and Barrett legit superstars, but they're supplemented by the likes of Cam Reddish and Tre Jones to give them a hugely fearsome group. FSU guard P.J. Savoy forced Reddish to dribble the ball out of bounds in the final minute and then drew a foul on a 3-point attempt on the ensuing possession. RJ Barrett carries Duke with 32 points and Devin Vassell leads the way for Florida State with 24.

And here's another twist - Reddish did all this while fighting cramps throughout the second half. Trusting God. Praying every day to be who I was. And to come up - it wasn't just that he hit that shot; he hit a couple other big ones. My coaches and teammates have helped me with my confidence.

Williamson is averaging 20.9 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game for Duke. Having said that, few Duke teams have looked quite like this one.

Duke almost suffered its second loss of the season on Saturday. The freshman phenom exited the game after the poke.

Saturday will be the second-ranked opponent the Seminoles have faced in three games, and Hamilton said it's a challenge they welcome and enjoy.

"I think they have a player now that probably is the most phenomenal talent that's been in the ACC since Michael Jordan", Hamilton said of Blue Devils star Zion Williamson. "They rose to a different occasion". "An occasion that we hadn't been in this year". They were inches away from pulling off a huge upset over Duke.

Duke vs. Florida StateDuke is 38-10 all-time versus Florida State, which includes a 15-7 mark in road games... "Maybe it does in horseshoes but not in basketball".

Florida State's Mfiondu Kabengele and Phil Cofer had 24 and 21 points respectively. So was Florida State guard Trent Forrest, who said simply, "Somehow, we lost Cam Reddish". "We basically got the things that we were looking for, we just came up a little short". They have all of the ingredients. "That's a scary thought". Barrett was stripped; Williamson finished gracefully over the top.

Kooch Leads Putnam by 2 Shots at Waialae
Kuchar was flawless on day three, posting four birdies without dropping a shot, to be the 54-hole leader at 18 under. Jordan Spieth had a short week despite a 66 in second round and missed the cut by one shot.


Williamson turned the ball over on the play and went down to the court in pain. He stayed down for several moments covering his face.

The Noles ended the first half on an 8-0 run. Williamson sat on the bench for the second half, but didn't play.

It never cleared during the second half, and he didn't play after halftime.

Williamson didn't experience any headaches with the double vision, Krzyzewski said. "He's better now. So hopefully he'll be able to play on Monday". But that's a big loss. "For this game, are you kidding, especially with the athleticism we're facing?"

The tension inside the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center only built on Saturday afternoon.

Simply put, with Zion, the team's inside presence is among the nation's best; without Zion, the inside presence looks like a bit of a present - a gift of easy baskets and rebounds - to other teams. This marks the fourth consecutive meeting in the series with each team ranked in the AP Top 25, and the lowest combined ranking (14) in the series since No. 2 Duke defeated No. 13 Florida State, 75-63, in Tallahassee on January 10, 1998.

Florida State: The Seminoles missed out on their fifth win over a top-ranked team. Should be good to go on Monday against Syracuse.

Having said that, Florida State is no joke.
