I seriously thought UNC was underrated at #8 preseason. But after watching them against Woford, and then watching Duke/KY and seeing highlights of KS/Mich St, UNC might be lucky to be an elite 8 team this year. It was like watching a high school game then flipping over to the NBA last night.

UNC always seems to struggle coming out of the gate, even more so when trying to work in freshman. Coby White and Nassir Little are going to great, but it will take Roy a while to turn them loose.

I ended the night up basically pondering can anyone beat Duke.
I don't think so. They are as good as any team college team as i have ever seen.
I know it's way early but man o man. They have some studs. Kentucky was outmanned and was not even in the same league as Duke and Kentucky is pretty damn good.
Barring any big injuries i predict an undefeated season.
They maybe the Alabama of College Basketball this year.
BTW - I am not even a Duke fan.

Damn have to admit I was SKEPTICAL about Zion WIlliamson and how good he was . Basically he played “white boy church league “ basketball where he went to school

However got some friends/clients that are HS coaches/Refs here in Upstate and they kept telling me this kid was THAT GOOD.

Now I see

WOW

ESPN is ready to hand Dook the championship after 1 game. They're led by freshman and have no bench. Yep they're loaded and have the most talented team in the country but gimme a break. There's no way they play that well all year.

I know. It is hard for me to think that also but it is not like they have one or even two studs. Barrett is probably the best player on team and Williamson is ridiculous. Reddish is a top player on any other team in the country and he is the third player out there.
Hell, the white guy almost had a double double against Kentucky and did lead the team in rebounds. I don't see all three of the top thee players playing bad at the same time. Any one of them could have went for 40 points if needed.
Williamson is 6'8 280 pounds with a 45" vertical. The worst thing is he is actually a point guard in a power forwards body.
If those three guys are on the court Duke does not get beat this season.

The invincible dookies go down. So far they've beaten an overrated Kentucky team and needed an extra 25 FT attempts to beat Auburn. Now they're headed back to Cameron to play cupcakes until the ACC schedule starts when they actually have to play road games.

Duke still just about pulled it out, not a Duke fan but this team is a LOT of fun to watch .

Zaga had their number last night and played with a lot of intensity

Almost impossible for a team to go through an entire basketball season this day and age and drop couple games here and there


Still think they win it all in the end

So much for my prediction of Duke going undefeated.
The ZAGS did not look intimidated at all.
All without one of their best players playing.

How long into the NCSU/UNC game tonight before ESPN mentions Zion?

I'll betting before the under 12 media TO. If Vitale is calling the game, then it'll happen before tip-off.

Nailed it. They brought up Zion's 30 pt game against Wake at the 12:31 mark in the first half.

UNC drops one place after a beatdown by unranked Louisville. NCSU drops two places after losing to a better ranked team and then redeeming themselves. FSU improves 2 places by barely losing to Duke. And KY moves up SIX after huge wins over (unranked) Texas A&M and Vanderbilt.

And what does ESPN show for top 10 highlights when Zion has the night off?

Duke was 90-0 at home as the #1 ranked team vs unranked teams.... Until tonight.

Dook was without two starters when jones went out. They still live and die by the three. Williams had a career high, 35. Fortunately, only a couple more months of that boy in college hoops.

Look for Va to beat Dook badly on Sat.

That want to be the hero to go high in the draft. Jones is out indefinitely. The 3-4 yr player teams will pick them apart.

ESPN reports that it doesn't matter. Zion can play both positions simultaneously.
