College Basketball Saturday Review 1.0:Duke lands Zion Williamson

Welcome to the first ever College Basketball Saturday Review on this website.Yesterday we had many big headlining topics but none more than when Duke landed the nation’s number two ranked prospect,Zion Williamson.

Zion Williamson makes Duke have the top three prospects in the country (R.J. Barrett,Zion Williamson,and Cam Reddish).This shows how dominant Coach K and Duke have been at recruiting.Zion Williamson,a South Carolina native,left instate fans,Clemson fans in particular,stunned.

Early Saturday,the best player in college basketball,Trae Young scored forty-eight points against arch rival Oklahoma State.The game went to overtime but Young’s forty-eight points were’t enough for Oklahoma against Oklahoma State.

Wichita State after starting the season as one of the best teams in college basketball is now suddenly skidding after their 73-59 loss to Houston.Who is to blame for this?

In College Game Day’s first Saturday morning of the year,they chose a battle between two SEC heavyweights.Florida and Kentucky battled at Rupp Arena.Florida got the best of the Wildcats with a score of 66-64.Four Florida players scored in double figures against Kentucky.Is it time to rethink expectations on Kentucky?They’ve lost three of their last five games.
