Duke's Zion Williamson (1) falls to the floor with an injury while chasing the ball with North Carolina's Luke Maye (32) during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in Durham, N.C., Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2019. Zorn said there is only one other athlete who is comparable to Williamson and his impact on ticket prices: LeBron James after he signed with the Los Angeles Lakers last summer.

He has been one of the best players in college basketball this season and is expected to be selected with the number one pick in the NBA Draft. Another contributing factor is Duke's smaller gym, which holds under 10,000 fans and reserves up to 1,600 seats for students.
