Zion Williamson rocks the world with a … block?

Kihei Clark committed six turnovers against Miami when he started in place of Ty Jerome

With Virginia trying to claw back in the game late in the second half, Williamson erased a wide-open three pointer with a breathtaking recovery block behind the arc.

The Virginia men's basketball team lost to Duke for the second time this season, as the #3 Cavaliers fell 81-71 against the second-ranked Blue Devils on Saturday at John Paul Jones Arena. Saturday he hit six from deep and scored a game-high 26.

"When I hit the first one, personally, I knew I was going to have a night, ' Barrett said".

It was the most three-pointers Virginia (20-2, 8-2) has permitted this season. He and Barrett have continually taken center stage, while fellow freshmen Cam Reddish (17 points) and Tre Jones (13 points, seven assists, six rebounds) also had strong showings.

Duke shot 57.8 percent overall.

Kyle Guy and Ty Jerome each scored 16 to lead Virginia (20-2, 8-2), which plays the No. 8 Tar Heels on Monday night.

Duke: Williamson is the player that everyone seems to focus on in pregame warmups because of his physical gifts, but it's Barrett that leads the Blue Devils in scoring (23 points per game to Williamson's 22 entering the game).

Duke made five of its first eight shots after halftime, including three Reddish 3-pointers over the first five minutes, to push its lead back into double-digits. And, yes, the result of that result has me jumping the Blue Devils above the Cavaliers in Sunday morning's updated CBS Sports Top 25 And 1 daily college basketball rankings. The 7-foot-1 redshirt sophomore made a three-pointer and delivered a pass into a tight window to Braxton Key for a layup that trimmed the deficit to 54-49 with 12:19 to play.

Any chance the Cavaliers had of overcoming the Blue Devils' shooting vanished with 14 turnovers that helped fuel Duke's 17-0 advantage in fast-break points.
