In fact, during Duke’s win over North Dakota State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday, a photo of Williamson celebrating a dunk by Barrett went viral. Two things stood out in the photo: just how absurdly high Williamson was above the ground, and how hyped he was for his teammate.

The Blue Devils won 85-62, getting 25 from Zion and 26 from Barrett.
