Usually it’s Zion Williamson on the receiving end of alley-oops, and it’s his dunks that make for the best Duke highlights. Not this time, though.

The Duke star spread the wealth to fellow freshman and expected top-five draft pick R.J. Barrett on Wednesday when he passed the ball off the backboard in transition for one of the more cinematic alley-oops you’ll see this season.

Not bad for a couple of rookies.

Duke beat Hartford, 84-54, at Cameron Indoor with Barrett going for 27 points, 15 rebounds and four assists while Williamson had 18 points and 12 boards.

Some pretty impressive lines, but that dunk, oh boy that dunk, is really all you needed to see from this one.
