The return of Zion Williamson has done wonders for the Duke of the Blue Devils.
The phenomenal freshman brought Duke to the title of the tournament on Saturday night. On Sunday, the NCAA Selection Committee rewarded Blue Devils with No. 1 seed at this year's NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.
Williamson missed five games after ripping his knee when his Nike tank broke into a regular season against last month. He looked very healthy in the ACC tournament, averaging 27 points and 10 rebounds, making 33 of 43 shots in Duke's three games, becoming only the sixth freshman in the 66-year history of the event to win MVP honors and first in a dozen years .
The Blue Devils joined the highest line of the rivals of ASS, Virginia, which won the first seeds in the Southern Region; and North Carolina, which received the first seed in the Midwest region, the first year of 2009, when three teams from the same conference received seed number 1.

Defending national champion Vilyanova won sixth place in the southern region after winning regular season and Big East tournaments. Wildcats will begin defending their title Thursday in Hartford, USA, against West Coast Conference champions Saint Mary's.
Virginia will try to avoid a reprisal from last year when it lost to UMBC and became the first seed ever to lose up to 16 seeds. Cavalrymen who gained a share of the Atlantic Coast title in the regular season, but lost in the AFC semi-finals for the Florida tournament, will begin their buy-in tour of the 16th Gardner-Web on the Friday night in Colombia. A country that shared the Big Ten title in the regular season with Purdue and knocked off its rival in Michigan on the final day of the tournament for the conference before the announcement of the matches won the No. 2 seed in the East and played against the first round against Bradley on Thursday in De Moine. This puts the possibility of a match between Elita and the Spartans and Duke.
The last time Michigan and Duke met in the NCAA tournament was in 2015 when Blue Devils blew up Michigan in the final.
Muel said that a Michigan state had jumped Kentucky, which had received the second Middle West seed, with its victory over Rosomachi, but added, "Similarly, we thought Michigan and State Michigan would be online "2". "Michigan is sent to the West Region and will play its first match against Montana on Thursday."
