Duke freshman sensation Zion Williamson went down in the first minute of Wednesday night's rivalry game against North Carolina after blowing completely out of his shoe.
The incident took place as he was making a move at the top of the key driving into the lane, and he immediately went down to the ground in pain. It's unclear at this point if Williamson was injured on the play, but he grabbed at his knee and was seen limping off the court with his torn-through shoe in hand.
Rudolph Ingram Jr. can run 100 meters in 13.48 seconds and is being called the “next Usain Bolt.”
He already has a nickname: Blaze the Great. He has been called “the next Usain Bolt,” and it may not be hyperbole. He has a growing Instagram following that just topped 300,000 and viral videos all over the place. He has football skills, too, and has drawn the attention of LeBron James and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, among others.

New York Jets safety Jamal Adams said he was only joking around when he made a flying tackle on the mascot of his AFC East rivals, the New England Patriots, during Wednesday's Pro Bowl Skills Challenge.
However, ESPN reported that the person inside the Pat Patriot costume had to be hospitalized Thursday morning.
"He was running around and everybody was booing him,” Adams told ESPN. “So I said, ‘You know what? Let me go tackle him.’ I didn’t hit him that hard, man. All jokes aside, I didn’t hit him that hard ... but they did tell me he’s in the hospital."
