Duke's Zion Williamson ruled out for rest of UNC game with knee injury

Duke forward Zion Williamson has been ruled out for the remainder of Wednesday's matchup against rival UNC after injuring his knee less than a minute into the contest.

Williamson's left shoe exploded beneath him as he appeared to injure his right knee after just 33 seconds of play.

Williamson left the court, shoeless, just a few minutes into the game and did not return.

He received a point of encouragement from former President Barack Obama, who is seated along the baseline near the Blue Devils bench.
