People are still reacting to Duke’s takedown of Kentucky Tuesday night. Here’s Chuck Culpepper in the Washington Post.

Over at, Molly Geary runs down the most ridiculous stats from the game. SI also thoughtfully breaks down Duke’s schedule and rates games for Zion highlight opportunities.

In the NBA, Steve Kerr jokingly risked a fine to marvel over Zion’s performance and compares him to LeBron James.

Gary Parrish wonders how proud Kentucky will find its bearings after that beatdown. John Clay says soul searching is in order. In the Courier-Journal, John Hale says Duke exposed Kentucky’s veterans and Tim Hale calls the game a blue tsunami.

Finally (for now), over at the Ringer, Kevin O’ Connor says Zion is here to melt your brain.
