Get used to this.
Duke’s freshmen have somehow exceeded their lofty preseason expectations so far this year and are now giving the Cameron Crazies a taste of what looks like an unprecedented season of basketball in Durham.
Zion Williamson’s just not fair
R.J. Barrett might be the best player on the team, but Zion Williamson looks like the most exciting thing to ever happen to Duke basketball.
The 6-7, 285-pound phenom put his remarkable athleticism on full display Wednesday as Duke laid it on against Eastern Michigan with this first-half alley-oop delivered by fellow freshman star Cam Reddish.
One of these days Zion is going to hit his chin on the rim 😱

Yes, Zion can see over the rim
In case you didn’t catch that, Williamson’s hands were above the top of the square on the backboard and his eyes met the rim.
Dude is bigger than NFL linebackers, and he’s only 18 years old. And he does that.
Williamson finished with 21 points and nine rebounds in the 84-46 win.
It’s going to be a fun season in Durham and a long one for everyone who takes pride in hating on Duke.
