After the Duke win, the Heat guards were pictured smiling and laughing with Barrett, a freshman who will likely be a top-three pick in this year's National Basketball Association draft. Will Zion be back?
Williamson's absence, coupled with a rough game from No. 3 option Reddish - who missed his first six shots and was called for charging three times - left Barrett as essentially a one-man show for Duke. And what Tar Heels do they have their eyes on. Kryzewski added he "would be surprised" if Williamson wasn't prepared for the ACC Tournament, which begins Tuesday.

Duke also lost to Virginia Tech on the road and put up its worst performance of the season at home in barely beating an 11-18 Wake Forest team that was a 26.5-point underdog. The freshman is projected to be the top pick is this June's NBA Draft. "I don't think he'll be ready for Saturday".

We had a hard time scoring, and he missed free throws, but he made the biggest bucket of the game ... and if we're in a similar situation, we'll do the same thing".
Tre Jones just limped to the locker room after getting dinged in this play.
"I thought we needed it", Reddish said.
