The hype on top NBA prospect Zion Williamson is no fluke. He appears to be the real deal and to some extent, this justifies the fact that you will need to shell out a considerable amount of money to watch him and the Duke Blue Devils face off against their archrivals in the North Carolina Tar Heels.
Nonetheless, we’re not sure any college game is worth that much dough. Sixth man extraordinaire Lou Williams seems to agree. To make matters even worse, there was an earlier report stating that ticket prices have gone up to as much as $10,000 a pop.
Duke is set to face off against UNC on Wednesday night in what is believed to be one of the most important matchups in this season’s NCAA tournament. All eyes will definitely be on Williamson as he makes his much-anticipated rivalry debut.
While at the end of the day, this is just one game in a long and arduous NCAA season, it will definitely have a substantial impact on Williamson’s college basketball career.
