Duke's Countdown to Craziness -- RJ scored the points, but Zion is always the show

DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- Duke will play its first exhibition game of the season October 23 against Virginia Union. I'd recommend helmets and shoulder pads if I were you, Panthers.

That notion was reinforced Friday night at Countdown to Craziness. After some theatrical intros, the White team outdueled the Blue team 44-39 in an abbreviated game.

RJ Barrett led all scorers with 23 (of his team's 39), but per usual, it was Zion Williamson's physics-defying physique that drew the biggest gasps.

He had 14, most of them of the impressive variety.

We don't know precisely how Duke will fare this year, but I can guarantee they'll be the biggest show in college hoops.
