Here’s a recap of the latest sports news:

  • USA Today’s Dan Wolken says Zion Williamson‘s return from injury was jaw-dropping and reminded us why Duke was No. 1 before he got hurt.
  • A little-known about group of current and former walk-ons, many who have never even met, boast one of the tightest bonds in college hoops. Sports Illustrated’s Jake Fischer shares their story.
  • Some good news from the college admissions cheating scandal: Those photos of a high school pole vaulter and a high school water polo player used in the fake athlete profiles? The real students actually became college athletes, ESPN’s Paula Lavigne reports.
