We made it exactly one possession into the most anticipated game of the week before things went haywire.

With just 30 seconds gone in the first half of Cameron Indoor Stadium, Zion Williamson tried to drive on Luke Maye, completely blew out his left shoe and did a split, which left him grabbing his left knee and limping off the floor:

Duke announced that he will not return for the game. After the game, Mike Krzyzewski told reporters that the injury is a mild sprain.

“We’re very concerned about Zion,” he said. “It’s a mild knee sprain. We will know about length of time tomorrow. It’s stable.
