Koby Altman Led Cavs Front Office to Watch Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett

Yes, Duke has some talented youngsters at its 1-4 spots that could one day be great in the National Basketball Association, but Cleveland's 1-10 roster makeup would be far too much for the Blue Devils to handle over the course of a game.

Williamson, R.J. Barrett and Duke overwhelmed No. 2 Kentucky in a 32-point win. When faced with lesser athletes and those nowhere close to his physical gifts, it's truly unfair and on Sunday, Army rolled into Cameron Indoor to face Zion and the Blue Devils and, unsurprisingly, he dominated with 27 points, 16 rebounds, four assists, and four blocks.

The Blue Devils, though, used their hustle to gain an advantage and got hot from the field to open up an 11-point lead. Still the Blue Devils are doing their best to stay grounded even as their stellar season-opening performance has already spurred talk of them waltzing to a national title. "In the second half, we played together more".

The Zion Williamson experience has managed to exceed expectations through the first two games of his Duke career.

Barrett scored 33 points, Williamson 28 and Reddish 22 for Duke. Not only did they not back down against a preseason Final Four favorite, they gave Duke more of a test than Kentucky did. He's not going to shoot 11-of-13 from the floor every night.

Drew Brees was 18 of 20 passing for 214 yards and three touchdowns in the first half - including two to receiver Michael Thomas . One of those "baby goats", as Bryant named the young stars on the team is Brees's favorite target.

Reddish scored in transition, followed by 3-pointers from Jones and Barrett. After reserve point guard Jordan Goldwire missed a 3-pointer with less than five minutes left in the first half, Josh Caldwell grabbed the rebound and had a clean breakaway that would have trimmed the Blue Devils' lead to one at 40-39, but missed the wide-open right-handed dunk.

When Duke had time to get set in its halfcourt man-to-man, it limited the Black Knights' chances, and they shot just 31.6 percent in the second half. So, you're telling me that this Duke Blue Devils team with the number 1 and 2 picks next year can't beat Cleveland?

"Our guys stuck to the game plan", Army coach Jimmy Allen said.

Army converted a 3-pointer by Tucker Blackwell and a Tommy Funk breakaway layup to trail 36-30.
