Zion, the ACC Freshman and Player of The Year, returned after missing nearly a month with a knee sprain during his Feb. 20th match up against North Carolina, a game in which they lost.
Duke struggled without the freshman only going 3-3 during his absence.
Well Zion returned with a vengeance during the first half Thursday night’s game as they look to advance to the semifinals to face North Carolina for a third time season.
Zion went a perfect 9-9 from the field, 1-1 from the three-point line and had 21 points and 9 rebounds during the first half.
Apparently, Syracuse Senior guard Frank Howard wasn’t too excited after Zion threw down a monster dunk to give the Blue Devils an early 14-9 lead.
Let’s just say Howard channeled his inner Grayson Allen in his attempt to stop the Zion freight train.
