North Carolina v Duke

It’d be nice to play Syracuse with Duke’s full compliment of players but that won’t happen again as Zion OMG Williamson will have to sit out to let his knee recover.

As you’ll recall, in Durham Tre Jones went out early after injuring his shoulder and Cam was out sick.

Williamson of course is out after the most celebrated/vilified injury we can remember after his Nike shoe came apart against UNC.

Here’s a stray thought: we’re not recommending it, but we wonder if bookies could sue Nike because a faulty product affected their business.

It doesn’t seem like the kind of suit that could succeed but what the hey. It’s 2019 and standards are minimal if not in fact optional. It might get interesting.
