Williamson causes physical mismatches. He’s averaging close to a double-double and has been a terror on both ends, regularly putting up 20 points nights and defending at a high level. Add in freshman Cam Reddish, yet another possible lottery pick, and the Blue Devils have a front court that has the ability to run teams out of the gym.
But outside of that conference opener against UVA, the Seminoles are averaging over 80 points per game in every other contest this season. Senior guard Terance Mann is shooting 44 percent from 3-point range thus far in 2018-19, and he’ll be the key if the Seminoles want to get the cover, or pull off the outright upset in the national spotlight on Saturday.
