During the huge game Saturday afternoon between Duke and Florida State, freshman superstar Zion Williamson had to exit the game after being poked in the eye.
It wasn’t a mild poke, either, as a defender really got his finger into the socket.

As Williamson lay on the ground in pain, the Seminoles drilled a three-pointer to pull to within two points, and then as he sat on the bench watching they went up by a a point at halftime.
Before exiting the game, Williamson had been playing well with 11 points, eight rebounds, and two assists, including this gem.
