Zion Williamson ponders ’41 games at the Garden’

Zion Williamson ponders ’41 games at the Garden’

Playing its first game in 10 days, Duke (10-1) fell behind by as many as eight points as it made just 6 of its first 25 shots. They missed all 10 3-point attempts and Williamson, who had 11 points and six boards in the half, was whistled for his third foul with 3:21 left.

As for the game itself, Williamson's fifth foul occurred on a charge in transition, drawing the ire of Duke fans who wanted a blocking foul or a no call.

"Forty-one games at the Garden, I mean, it would probably be incredible", Williamson told reporters after Duke's 69-58 victory over the Red Raiders.

"This is the Garden", Williamson said.

On Thursday night, the Texas Tech Red Raiders will face off against the Duke Blue Devils at Madison Square Garden in a showdown between two of the top teams in the nation.

Cam Reddish hit a late 3-pointer for a 63-57 lead that sealed the win in the first meeting between the programs. Philadelphia 76ers star Jimmy Butler sat courtside and cheered for Williamson and Knicks President Steve Mills was in the house.

All that being said, Culver is really good which is why he scored 25 points on 9-of-20 shooting Thursday.

Had this been earlier in the season, Barrett most likely would have forced up that first shot as he was doubled team, which could have lead to a run out for Texas Tech as they could have tied the game with a 3-pointer. Duke finished with 14 blocked shots and 12 steals. Texas Tech comes in ranked number 12 and is one of the few remaining unbeaten teams in the country with a record of 10-0.

Texas Tech is coming off an 82-48 drubbing of Abilene Christian in their last game.

Duke found out exactly that at Madison Square Garden on Thursday as the Red Raiders had a lead well into the second half. He also had six rebounds, two steals, and one block.

Jarrett Culver is Texas Tech's best player.

Duke also struggled with ball security as Barrett and Reddish each turned the ball over six times and Williamson five times as Duke logged 19 giveaways.

Princeton scored the game's first eight points and maintained a 13-5 lead with 14:24 to play.
