Zion Williamson made his much-anticipated return to the court for Duke late Thursday night against Syracuse in the ACC tournament, and folks, he did not disappoint.

In five games without their star, the Blue Devils lost twice — to Virginia Tech and North Carolina — and looked noticeably different on the court. The team announced on Thursday morning that Williamson would be back for Duke’s quarterfinal against the Orange.

Williamson scored Duke’s first bucket of the game on a layup. His second came on a slam that we’ve seen before. After pickpocketing Syracuse’s Frank Howard, Williamson scooped up the ball and familiarized himself with the rim.

The scoop-and-score is one of the lasting highlights we’ll have from Williams at Duke. He’s been doing it all season.
