Syracuse was the story of the sports world last night after defeating top ranked Duke on the hardwood.

Following the contest, Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim was asked about Blue Devil star Zion Williamson, and gave the top ranked collegiate player a big compliment, comparing him to basketball great Charles Barkley.

The Hall of Fame hall of fame coach had a slight grin on his face after taking a dig at Charles Barkley when complimenting Zion Williamson.

Barkley will likely laugh about it, and I'm sure Williamson will be flattered.
