With Jay-Z sitting courtside, Zion Williamson (25 points) helps Duke coast by Pitt

ESPN

Very little, if anything, has fazed Zion Williamson during his freshman season at Duke.

Not even Jay-Z sitting courtside.

Williamson hit his first 10 shots and scored 25 points on Tuesday night as the No. 2 Blue Devils had little trouble in a clinical 79-64 victory over host Pittsburgh and coach Jeff Capel, a former Duke assistant.

Afterward, the talk shifted to Jay-Z, arguably the greatest rapper of all time, who sat front row and watched Williamson and teammate RJ Barrett(26 points) show why Duke is must-watch basketball every time the Blue Devils take the court.

"That was like a dream come true,'' Williamson said. "To me, he's the GOAT."

Jay-Z's representatives reached out to Pitt a few weeks ago about stopping by for Tuesday night's game.

Williamson said the rapper's song "A Dream" is on his pregame playlist.

"When he walks in, with his squad, you look over and you're like, 'Oh my God, that's him,'" Williamson said.

The freshman wasn't the only person to notice. Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett also was at the game and took some pictures with Jay-Z.
