Zion Williamson should just be sent to the National Basketball Association right now


Kentucky is hoping he has worked on his offensive arsenal more during the offseason because he is already an outstanding defender individually and within team-defense structures. So how exactly does this happen? Both Barrett and Williamson broke the record for most points scored for a freshman on their debut, eclipsing the previous mark of 25 points set by Marvin Bagley III. Barrett can score easily at the college level. He simply gets it done with brute force around the basket. Barrett's shot isn't the prettiest in the world, but the ball does go in; he shot three of seven from the perimeter against Kentucky.

In 32 minutes of action, Barrett - a 6-7 shooting guard from Brampton, Ontario, racked up 33 points on 13-of-26 shooting from the field (3-of-7 from beyond the arc), six assists and four rebounds.

Mike Krzyzewski's squad tipped off its new season against preseason No. 2 Kentucky in a heavily anticipated matchup.

Kentucky: It was an embarrassing performance for the Wildcats, who weren't physical enough against Williamson and couldn't keep up with Barrett. But Reddish can take over the scoring load for Duke whenever it is necessary.

Duke's dominance of Kentucky also added another chapter to Krzyzewski's recent stronghold on the one-and-done talent pool.

Washington was an invaluable contributor in the tournament, averaging almost 14 points per game and shooting 63 percent from the floor in Kentucky's three tournament games.

This year, the Cavs are looking quite horrid and while it is sad to say this after the success of the past couple seasons, it is time to start looking towards the NBA Draft in June.

Now the model has dialed in on Blue Devils vs. Wildcats.

To make matters worse for other teams, Duke has plenty of depth after its Big Three. But until Tuesday, he had not played with or against Jones' younger brother, Duke freshman point guard Tre Jones. It didn't take much time for him to prove everyone wrong. He can focus on playing a distributor role, and got off to a good start in his first game with seven assists. "If they play like that, they're not losing many, if that's who they are". Center Marques Bolden, another guy with size, should provide some extra rim protection and shot blocking. Pair them with Stanford transfer Reid Travis, whose 19.5 points a game past year ranked him third in the Pac-12, and you have a unsafe core.

Neither team shot well from the floor as a whole - UCA shot 32.8 percent and Central Baptist shot 29.3 percent - but the Sugar Bears particularly struggled from the three-point line, going 1 for 17. It's not clear if Cleveland is considering the "T" word (tanking) yet, but general manager Koby Altman is keeping a close eye on several notable college prospects, including RJ Barrett, Zion Williamson, and Cam Reddish. Is this the Alabama football effect at Duke this season for basketball? But this one got away from them because of poor free-throw shooting and sloppy overall play - things that need to be cleaned up quickly.

"He was just a little runt running around when I played (in AAU), which is a lot of respect to him", Travis said after Kentucky beat Indiana-Pennsylvania last Friday. Enjoy the run, because few teams in the future will be able to match up to what we're watching right now.
