Duke freshman Zion Williamson became a viral sensation for his jaw-dropping dunks before he even left high school.
But Williamson wants to be known for much more than that.
"I kind of hate being classified as a dunker," he said, according to ESPN's David M. Hale. "Coach (Mike Krzyzewski) wouldn't have recruited me if I was just a dunker. But I guess people on the outside don't understand that. I can't play to impress other people."
Williamson's all-around game was on display in Tuesday's win over Wake Forest. He notched a career-high 30 points on 13-of-16 shooting – including three made 3-pointers – and added 10 rebounds, five assists, four steals, and a block. Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons is the only other Division I freshman in history to post a 30-10-5-4 line.
Krzyzewski believes there's room for Williamson to grow, but said he's more than impressed with what he's already seen.
