Maui Invitational - Iowa State v Illinois
LAHAINA, HI - NOVEMBER 20: Zion Williamson #1 of the Duke Blue Devils tries to block the shot of Bryce Brown #2 of the Auburn Tigers during the first half of the game at the Lahaina Civic Center on November 20, 2018 in Lahaina, Hawaii.

Over at The Sporting News, Thomas Lott marvels at Zion Williamson’s block of De’Andre Hunter’s shot in the Virginia game and rightfully so. It was a stunning play.

But he also says this: “Zion Williamson isn’t known for blocking shots...“

Really? He must have missed this one. Or this one. Or even this one, one of the great plays of recent seasons.

He’s been doing it all season including from behind, face to face and threejects.

We’re not picking on Lott, not really. He has other things to do besides watch Duke games. But he really should watch a few. because the blocks are a big part of the fun.
