This doesn’t happen too often: Duke has two candidates for the Naismith Award, both are absolutely worthy and either could win it although one is probably more favored.

The two in question of course are Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett, who have been sensational individually and together. Barrett is averaging 23.3 ppg, tops in the ACC, while Williamson comes in at 21.6.
