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.

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.

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.
