On Sunday, Michigan State will have their chance to take down the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, the Duke Blue Devils.
As you have probably heard, Duke is led by freshman phenom Zion Williamson, who has been absolutely dominant in just about every game he has played this season.
Spartans head coach Tom Izzo was asked on Saturday if there is another player he would compare Zion to and his response was perfect.
When Michigan St. coach Tom Izzo was asked today if there were a player he would compare to Zion Williamson, he replied Khalil Mack.

Khalil Mack, of course, is one of the most dominant defensive players in the NFL and he currently plays for the Chicago Bears.
One thing is for sure, if basketball had not worked out for Zion, he would surely have a spot in the NFL.
