Duke star Zion Williamson returned to the Blue Devils lineup on Thursday night and took over.  He led Duke to an 84-72 win over Syracuse with 29-points.

Early on Zion outscored Syracuse by himself.  His hot start seemed to frustrate the Orange.

The frustration caused Syracuse’s Frank Howard to attempt a trip of Zion as he made his way back to play defense.

Ultimately the trip and the attempt slow Zion down were unsuccessful.  But you can’t say Howard didn’t try.

Who knows what would have happened if the trip attempt was a successful one.  Maybe Zion would have rolled an ankle and his shoe would have disintegrated.
