All eyes will be on Colonial Life Arena in South Carolina at 7:10pm ET tonight as the #1 overall seed Duke Blue Devils take on #16 seed North Dakota State Bison in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Specifically, fans will be focused on Duke's Zion Williamson, the projected #1 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.

In fact, CBS has revealed that they have a special "Zion Cam" dedicated to tracking the star freshman for the duration of the game.

Per The State's Gavin McIntyre:

“Because of Zion (Williamson), we have added a camera dedicated to him the whole time he is on the floor,” said Wolff, who has risen to be the network’s coordinating producer of college basketball. “We hired a cameraman, a camera, a digital tape machine to record everything he does.”

“We were recording his workout here today in the event something were to happen,” Wolff said. “We are monitoring Zion 24-7.”

Williamson, 18, averaged 22.1 points and 8.9 rebounds per game this year and was the unanimous ACC player of the year. He's one of four finalists for the Naismith Trophy, an award which recognizes the most outstanding men’s college basketball player.
