NEW YORK -- For all the hype over Zion Mania on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden, it might have been easy to overlook his teammate RJ Barrett.
The 6-foot-7 Barrett had far from his best game in his Garden debut, but came on strong down the stretch and finished with 16 points on 7-of-22 shooting with three rebounds as No. 2 Duke beat No. 11 Texas Tech 69-58.
Before Zion Williamson established himself as the projected No. 1 pick in the eyes of most everyone, Barrett held that position entering the season. Now, the Mississauga, Ontario, native and the son of former St. John's star Rowan Barrett has "fallen" ... all the way to No. 2 on most mock drafts.
