DURHAM, N.C. – Fans of the Duke men’s basketball program took their first look at the 2018-19 squad during the Blue Devils’ 10th annual Countdown to Craziness presented by Delta Air Lines event Friday evening at a sold-out Cameron Indoor Stadium. 

The night began with introductions of both the men’s and women’s basketball team before the Blue Devil men took the court for a 20-minute Blue-White scrimmage. The White team emerged with a 44-39 victory thanks freshman Zion Williamson, who finished with 14 points and five rebounds. The Spartanburg, S.C., native finished 7-11 from the field, with five of his field goals coming from highlight-reel dunks. 

Freshman RJ Barrett poured in a game-high 23 points, while freshman Cam Reddish and junior Javin DeLaurier, each scored in double-figures with 13 and 10, respectively. Junior Marques Bolden pulled down a game-high six rebounds.

Five Duke freshmen made their debuts in Cameron Friday evening with Williamson, Barrett, Reddish, Tre Jones and Joey Baker.

The White Team jumped out to an early 17-8 lead after the first 10 minutes, but a pair of dunks from Barrett and a three from Reddish pulled Blue within 28-24 with 7:11 remaining.

White regained control with a 7-0 run to put the game away.

Duke opens exhibition play Tuesday, Oct. 23, hosting Virginia Union at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m., with the contest airing on ACC Network Extra.
