Zion: Jay-Z sitting courtside 'was like a dream come true'
Williamson said after the game that he spotted Jay-Z in the crowd. He also noted that the rapper's song "A Dream" is on his pregame playlist.
"That was like a dream come true," Williamson said, according to Will Graves of the Associated Press. "To me, he's the GOAT."
There was some speculation that Jay-Z attended the game to scout Williamson for his Roc Nation Sports agency. Pittsburgh Panthers head coach Jeff Capel revealed in his postgame press conference that he helped coordinate the visit.
"His people reached out to me a few weeks ago, actually, about them wanting to come, people from Roc Nation," Capel said. "Our athletic department and our ticketing people did an amazing job of accommodating that. Obviously, it's great to have the greatest rapper ever in the arena."
