CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Zion Williamson led the Duke Blue Devils with 21 points, 5 rebounds and 2 blocks in a 73-63 victory over No. 12 Florida State on Saturday night to capture the ACC Championship.
The Blue Devils locked up the conferences automatic bid to the NCAA tournament — possibly earning itself a No. 1 overall seed.
“I told them last night: ‘We’ve won a lot of championships, but I haven’t won one with you,'” Krzyzewski said during the trophy presentation. “So to be in their moment is the very best thing.”
Williamson became only the sixth freshman to win MVP honors, after averaging 27 points and 10 rebounds (shooting 33 of 43 from the field in the three games).
RJ Barrett had 17 points and nine rebounds, and Tre Jones added 18 points and six assists. Cam Reddish chipped in 11 points
