Zion Williamson's season will go down as one of the best and most memorable seasons in the history of Duke Basketball and it was a pleasure to see his presence lighting up Cameron Indoor Stadium this season.

He was named a consensus first-team All-American, the USA Today national player of the year award and a finalist for the Wooden award.

He spoke Friday about how much he has enjoyed his time at Duke.

The Duke superstar was named the victor of the 2019 Wooden Award, joining Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis as the only freshmen to ever win the Player of the Year honor.

Barrett was presented with the trophy Friday night by its namesake West during the nationally televised show in Los Angeles.
