Syracuse guard Frank Howard appeared to try to trip Duke star Zion Williamson during a quarterfinal ACC Tournament matchup Thursday.
The play occurred with a little more than 12 minutes remaining in the first half. Howard looked as if he stuck out his leg after Williamson finished a dunk and was running back on defense.
Williamson stumbled but regained his balance without falling.

Williamson returned to the lineup Thursday after missing five games because of a sprained right knee he suffered less than 40 seconds into Duke’s first matchup against North Carolina on Feb. 20.
He tallied 21 points on 9-of-9 shooting, nine rebounds and five steals in the first half against the Orange.
