Zion Williamson to return in ACC Tournament against Syracuse

For the first time since Feb. 20, Zion Williamson (knee sprain) will suit up and play for Duke. After missing Duke’s final five games of the regular season, Williamson will play Thursday night against Syracuse in the quarterfinals in the 2019 ACC Tournament.

Duke and Syracuse split the regular season series — with both teams winning on the road. Zion Williamson played in the first matchup, which Duke lost; however, he was excellent: 35 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks.
