Zion Williamson starred for the Blue Devils on Friday night, headlining his highlight-reel-worthy performance with an insane alley-oop from point guard Tre Jones in the second half for No. 1 Duke as they rallied against No. 4 Virginia Tech in an ACC clash in the Sweet 16. 

Williamson, who posted 57 points through his first two 2019 NCAA tournament games, started out strong, sending the bounce of a missed RJ Barrett jumper back in with a big dunk early in the contest.

The 6'7" freshman star added another viral clip to his reel shortly after his second chance dunk on the other end of the court. Williamson got way up from the paint to pin a shot from the Hokies' Kerry Blackshear Jr. off the backboard.

After a quiet finish to the first half, Williamson returned to form in the second to put Duke back on top. He muscled his way to the rim for two to take the lead but his most impressive move of the night was when he literally soared across the floor to slam in an alley-oop from Jones.

The winner of Friday night's Sweet 16 game will face No. 2 Michigan State on Sunday in the Elite Eight.
