Duke men’s basketball just concluded their Canadian Tour, and R.J. Barrett and Zion Willaimson lived up to all the hype they have received coming into this season. They started the 2018-2019 season with a bang, and with their performances on the tour, they have everybody in Durham excited, and basketball fans everywhere.
If anybody watched basketball the first month of the season, it was a clear given that Ben Simmons was the Rookie of the Year. It was over! We saw all we needed to see! Just hand him the trophy now and save yourself the headache! Some say it still is. Simmons is putting up a very impressive 16.9 points, 7.4 assists, and 8.5 rebounds while shooting .504% from the floor.
