Zion Williamson adds to his trophy collection with Wooden Award”

In his incredible season at Duke, Zion Williamson averaged 22.6 points, 8.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 2.1 steals, and 1.8 blocks per game, while shooting an unbelievable 68.0% from the field and an improving 33.8% from 3-point range.

Zion Williamson was also nominated for the John R. Wooden Award that was presented later Friday night.

Barrett beat out Justin Wright-Foreman of Hofstra, Carsen Edwards of Purdue, Jarrett Culver of Texas Tech and Kyle Guy of national champion Virginia.

Widely considered the top prospect for this year's draft, Williamson declined to say whether he would join Barrett and Reddish in declaring, drawing laughter from the crowd when he said, "Umm, who knows?"

The two-time Pac-12 Player of the Year is the all-time NCAA leader in triple-doubles with 18.

"Just being around each other on and off the court because it was more than basketball", Williamson said during the nationally televised show.

Ionescu previously repeated as the victor of the Nancy Lieberman award as point guard of the year, won the WBCA's Wade Trophy as the nation's most outstanding player and was named an All-American by the AP, USBWA and WBCA.

The Blue Devils fell to Michigan State in the Elite Eight.

"Because it was the little things throughout the season that they did to keep me motivated - from RJ [Barrett] telling me, 'I don't feel you right now; you gotta bring the energy, ' to Tre [Jones] saying, 'Bro, it's time to turn up, ' to Cam [Reddish] saying, 'Bro, kill, ' it was a lot". The women will be represented by Oregon's Sabrina Ionescu, Louisville's Asia Durr and Iowa's Megan Gustafson.
