WATCH: St. John’s tries (and fails) to intimidate Zion Williamson

As St. John’s takes on No. 2 Duke this Saturday, the Red Storm are implementing an interesting strategy to try and get Zion Williamson off his game.

During the first half, Mustapha Heron was literally poking Zion in the chest.

Spoiler alert: It did not work.

Shortly afterward, Williamson came up with a huge steal, then had nothing but open court in front of him on the fast break as he slammed it home.

Friendly reminder: Don’t poke the bear.
