The honors continue to roll in for the newest star of the New Orleans sports scene.

Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson was given the ESPY award for Best College Athlete Wednesday night.

Williamson's career as a star at Duke University is what positioned him to be taken #1 overall by the Pelicans in the NBA Draft.

Williamson beat out Heisman-winning Oklahoma football star and fellow #1-overall draft choice Kyler Murray, Oregon women's hoops star Sabrina Ionescu, and UCLA softballer Rachel Garcia.
