Zion Williamson led Duke to a narrow Round of 32 victory over UCF and joined some elite company in the process.

Along with his 25 points in Friday's win over North Dakota State, Williamson's 32 on Sunday matched Kevin Durant's freshman NCAA Tournament record of 57 points through the first two games, per ESPN Stats and Info.

Unlike Durant in 2007 however, Williamson will have a chance to keep scoring. Durant's Texas Longhorns squad lost their second tourney game that year, putting an end to his college basketball career. Duke now awaits the winner of Virginia Tech and Liberty in the Sweet 16.

Williamson shot 50 percent against UCF, including 3-of-7 from beyond the arc, and is shooting 62.5 percent from the floor in the tournament. On Sunday, he added 11 rebounds and four assists.
