Zion Williamson Leaves Game With Eye Injury

  • Zion Williamson on the bench during Duke at Florida State

And when it comes to offense, without Zion, one fact becomes abundantly clear: The best options for scoring - seemingly the only options at times - are from R.J.

For Reddish, it was a redemptive moment after a six-game stretch in which he hit a bit of a shooting slump.

Barrett finished with 32 points while Reddish had 23.

"It's a blessing", Reddish said. "I was working really hard to get back to who I was".

Zion Williamson got poked in the eye during the first half of action.

He suffered from double vision and sat on the bench in the second half but Krzyzewski said it's possible that Williamson will play in Duke's next game against Syracuse.

That strategy worked - Florida State had seven dunks in the second half and 10 total in the game, the most Duke has given up all season. There was 15.8 remaining in the game and Savoy made two of three to give the Noles a 78-76 lead.

Barrett is now the leading scorer in the ACC, averaging 22.8 points per game. But he only made one free throw.


The Duke Blue Devils needed someone to come up big if they wanted to take down the Florida State Seminoles on Saturday.

Williamson did not play during the second half after being hit by Florida State guard Trent Forrest while Williamson was dribble-driving toward the Blue Devils basket with 1:26 left in the first half.

"Coach said it", Barrett said.

"I wasn't out on the court yet", Krzyzewski said. We're going to him down the stretch. "He's better now. So hopefully he'll be able to play on Monday".

Reddish and Barrett were stunned that he was left all alone. There's no telling how good they're going to be come March and they're to be commended for the outstanding job they're doing. He has turned the ball over just 14 times in 14 games this season. "They're putting themselves in a pretty good position". They combined to shoot five of eight from three point land. The No. 13 team in the country is as athletic as they've ever been this season and have some big wins, even if they were handled decisively by Virginia to start ACC play.

"Prove is not the word", he said. "They rose to the different occasion".

"It was great", said Reddish, who scored 16 second-half points. "For this game, are you kidding?" It was a big shot for us. "With Tre making sure we were getting the ball to those two guys". "But, huge - huge for Cam".

Duke's schedule won't get much easier moving forward.
