2019 Tournament PreviewZion Williamson is back, and so are the Blue Devils. The future No. 1 NBA draft pick missed five games to conclude conference play, and Duke effectively took three losses as a result. Williamson (22.1 ppg, 8.9 rpg, 2.2 spg, 1.8 bpg) returned with a vengeance, posting two double-doubles to open the ACC tournament and helping Duke avenge a pair of regular-season losses to North Carolina. Fellow freshman R.J. Barrett (22.9 ppg, 7.5 rpg, 4.1 apg) is destined to be a lottery pick as well, while on pace to set the ACC freshman scoring record. The duo has led Duke to the sixth-highest rates nationally in both offensive and defensive efficiency, according to KenPom. Duke boasts the fourth-highest field-goal percentage on two-point baskets, but it converts only 30.5 percent on 3-pointers -- 334th nationally. Point guard Tre Jones (9.3 ppg, 5.3 apg) is known for lockdown defense, but the X-factor might be 6-8 freshman Cam Reddish (13.7 ppg), who is streaky (32.7 percent from deep) but leads the team in 3-pointers made with 82.
