The highlight-reel of a star led the Blue Devils to a top seed in the NCAA Tournament, as they were National Championship favorites all season long. He ended up leading them to the Elite Eight, where they were eliminated by the Michigan State Spartans in the second weekend. Despite the early exit, Williamson became the first freshman to record 100 points in the March Madness Tournament.
Williamson averaged 22.6 points and 8.9 rebounds for the Blue Devils, who were in and out of the top spot in the AP Top 25 this season, and beat Florida State to win the ACC Tournament. The freshman ranked second in the country by shooting 68 percent from the floor, while also leading the ACC with 2.12 steals per game and 1.79 blocks per game. He was a constant highlight reel for the Blue Devils this season, which is why he is the top-ranked prospect heading in to June's NBA Draft.
