Sunday’s Top 25 basketball roundup: Williamson, Duke fend off Army

Sunday’s Top 25 basketball roundup: Williamson, Duke fend off Army

The freshmen trio of Zion Williamson, Cam Reddish, and R.J. Barrett combined to score 75 of Duke's 94 points.

Speaking of firepower, Williamson was the lone Blue Devil to display it early and often throughout the game on both ends of the floor (however, in likely the surprise of the night, his first dunk did not come until the seven-minute mark of the first half).

Matt Wilson scored 15 points and Tommy Funk added 10 for Army (1-1), and Funk hit back-to-back 3s to pull the Black Knights to 67-61 with just more than 12 minutes left.

No. 2 CT 85, Ohio State 53: Sophomore Megan Walker, a former Boo Williams AAU player from the Richmond area, scored 15 points and grabbed six rebounds in the Huskies' victory in Storrs, Conn.

Reddish scored 25 points, making 7 of 13 3-pointers, while Barrett added 23 for the Blue Devils.

The Sun Devils have celebrated Native American culture at a game every season, and this year made a decision to bring the game to the Navajo Nation. He added 16 rebounds and six blocked shots.

"I saw some kid on Duke last night who was pretty impressive", Kerr said, per The Athletic's Anthony Slater.

The Blue Devils secured three offensive rebounds off three missed field goals on a possession that ended with a Reddish 3-pointer that started their second-half scoring.

After trailing by 11, Army was within 44-42.

(2) CT 85, OHIO STATE 53: Katie Lou Samuelson scored 19 points and host UConn opened its quest for a 12th national title with a rout of the Buckeyes (1-2). When he goes up against teams that play the 2-3 zone, Williamson is going to have to prove he can consistently hit the outside jumper.

The double-digit line isn't the first sizable spread provided by Sherman for a hypothetical matchup this week, as he deemed the Bills to be 28.5-point favorites over Alabama in a gridiron battle. "They know more than to think that every game is going to be like that".

The Blue Devils absolutely annihilated No. 2 Kentucky at the Champions Classic to deal head coach John Calipari the worst defeat of his career at any level.

Duke maintained a 44-37 lead when Williamson hit one of two free throws at 3:12 before Army scored the game's next five points, taking advantage of Duke defensive lapses.
