Add another one to the Zion Williamson highlight reel.

The Blue Devils are certainly living up to their ranking.

The Blue Devils pulled away in the second half for an 81-71 win over the No. 3 ranked Cavaliers in what proved to be a fairly well-rounded effort. Williamson replied: "Stop it, bro", in an attempt to douse the media hype surrounding his potential lottery status in the upcoming NBA Draft - whereas teammate Tre Jones, himself a point guard, was damn near fixated that his idol Rajon Rondo was in the stands watching him control the pace.

Duke completed a regular-season sweep of Virginia on Saturday to improve to 22-1 overall, 9-1 in the ACC.
