WASHINGTON D.C — The implications couldn't be much higher.

Michigan State. Duke. Zion Williamson.

The second-seeded MSU (31-6) will play the No. 1 Blue Devils (32-5) on Sunday at Capital One Arena (5:05 p.m. EST) in the NCAA Tournament East Region finals, with the winner headed to the Final Four.

Spartans coach Tom Izzo is 1-11 all-time against Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, with the lone win coming in the 2005 in the Sweet 16. It will be MSU's first look at Williamson, who averages 22.6 points and 8.7 rebounds per game and is considered the consensus, top-overall pick in the upcoming NBA Draft.

Here's what the 6-foot-7 Williamson, and MSU's players, had to say:
