Zion Williamson hit his first 10 shots and scored 25 points on Tuesday night as the No. 2 Blue Devils had little trouble beating Pittsburgh and coach Jeff Capel, a former Duke assistant.
Jay Z sat front row and watched Williamson light it up, and showed why Duke is must-watch basketball every time the Blue Devils take the court.
HAVE A NIGHT, ZION WILLIAMSON.

Jay-Z’s representatives reached out to Pitt a few weeks ago about stopping by for Tuesday night’s game.
Williamson said the rapper’s song “A Dream” is on his pregame playlist.
“When he walks in, with his squad, you look over and you’re like, ‘Oh my God, that’s him,'” Williamson said.
Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett also was at the game and took some pictures with Jay-Z.
