"To me, he's the GOAT."
The Duke Blue Devils improved to 16-2 last night in Pittsburgh with a 79-64 victory, as Zion Williamson went off for 25 points, seven assists and seven rebounds while his fellow freshman phenom RJ Barrett poured in a game-high 26 points.
And they did it all in front of Jay Z, who was unexpectedly seated courtside to watch the most polarizing team in college basketball.
"That was like a dream come true,'' Williamson said after the victory, according to ESPN. "To me, he's the GOAT."
"When he walks in, with his squad, you look over and you're like, 'Oh my God, that's him,'" Williamson said.
Despite the pressure of playing in front of Jay Z, Williamson was perfect from the field in the first half, scoring 19 points on 9-for-9 shooting from the field.
"I said [at halftime], 'I got like 10 points right now; I'm not really doing nothing,''' Williamson said. "I come in here and they tell me what I got, and I was like, 'Dang.'''
The Blue Devils, 16-2, are currently ranked second in the country trailing only Tennessee. Zion, Barrett and co. will host Georgia Tech in their next game on Saturday afternoon.
