Zion Williamson is like a runaway freight train. If you get in his way, you better be prepared to suffer the consequences.


The Duke star has one of the most intimidating physiques in the NCAA tournament, rivaled only by one of his Second Round opponents.

Williamson and Tacko Fall will be the featured match-up when Duke meets UCF, and the odds say Williamson won’t dunk on his much larger opponent.

At this point, it’s a fairly one sided prop, with the books having little faith that Zion can throw down over someone nine inches taller.

Get Out of His Way

Williamson has been rocking the rim all season, and it didn’t stop in the opening round.

He punished North Dakota State inside for three massive slams, including this one where the defender couldn’t get out of his way quick enough.

We haven’t seen someone at the collegiate level with this kind of speed and athleticism in a long time, if ever, but the Giant protecting the UCF rim is pretty impressive in his own right.

Fall May be Vulnerable

Fall averaged nearly 2.5 blocks per game during the regular season, and swatted 5 attempts in the Knights opening round match-up versus VCU.

He’s adamant that he won’t allow Zion to put him on one of his highlight tapes, but that exact thing happened against the Rams.

No offense to Issac Vann, but he’s nowhere near the athlete that Zion is. And if he can posterize Fall, just imagine what the projected number one pick will do.

At this point, I’m ready to believe Williamson could dunk on anybody alive, including UCF’s 7-foot-6 mountain.

Pick: YES (+200)
