Barrett gave Williamson a score of 8 for the dunk, while Williamson said it was a 7 or 8 on his scale. "Coach [Mike Krzyzewski] wouldn't have recruited me if I was just a dunker". I can't play to impress other people.

Williamson made his case against the Demon Deacons.

The high-flying Williamson was 13 of 16 from the field with three 3-pointers - he entered with four all season - in surpassing the 28 points he scored in his debut against No. 2 Kentucky.

Duke is paced by freshman RJ Barrett's 22.9 points per game and Williamson's 20.2, making the Blue Devils the only major conference team with two players each averaging 20 points per game.

Zion Williamson describes people thinking of him only as a dunker and focuses on getting better as a player. "I'm playing to get better for myself and my teammates and hopefully make a run for a national championship". If I don't then there's something wrong with me.
