This block by Zion Williamson was off the charts

RJ Barrett and Zion Williamson lead Duke past Virginia | College Basketball Highlights Duke pokes holes in Virginia’s vaunted defense, rolls to 81-71 win

Zion Williamson's ridiculous catalog of dunks get all the attention, but the projected No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft is also one of the country's most fearsome shot blockers.

In allowing their most points this season, the Cavaliers were particularly spotty challenging shots from beyond the arc, with the Blue Devils making 13 of 21 while rolling to an 81-71 win.

Both of UVa's losses this season have come against the Blue Devils.

U.Va. forward Mamadi Diakite collided face-to-face Saturday night with teammate De'Andre Hunter with 4:39 left in the first half, resulting in Diakite laying face-down and almost motionless on the floor in front of Duke's bench for about a minute before walking to the locker room.

Duke played that game without Jones, who sat with a shoulder injury. Gonzaga had it, Kansas got it back - and then Tennessee took it over after Duke, Virginia and MI all lost in the same January week, and the Volunteers haven't relinquished that spot since.

Duke has recorded a steal on 13.9 percent of opponents' possessions - best percentage in the NCAA. He'd prefer to avoid a reminder, but he and his Virginia teammates will have to try Monday night at North Carolina to elude a skid.

Williamson hit his only three, while R.J. Barrett and Cam Reddish scorched the nets, hitting 6-of-10 and 5-of-8 shots from deep respectively. The Wolverines will be looking to make a move into the top five. Duke's 5-1 record versus top 15 teams leads the nation...

Gonzaga spent a couple weeks at No. 1 after defeating Duke to win the Maui Invitational, but slipped to No. 8 in mid December after falling to Tennessee and North Carolina. "We knew nobody else was gonna win the game for us, so we just tried to keep our composure and play the rest of the 20 minutes". Of the 40 best scoring defense teams, Duke is the only team ranked in the top 115 for fastest tempo.

It feels like decades ago that Duke thumped Kentucky to open this season at the Champions Classic.

Duke's smoking hot shooting start to the game, including uncharacteristically good 3-point shooting, helped the Blue Devils lead by 14 points on two occasions and 35-22 with 4:18 to play in the half. Kansas State plays Texas and Iowa State this week.
