On March 6 at 8 a.m., several hundred congregants filed into Fifth African Baptist Church to hear pastor Dale Sanders give his weekly sermon in what he has called his “church in the hood.” Among them was a 6-6 giant sitting near the church’s rear. Sanders had no idea that Zion Williamson and his family would be attending his services that week. But he made the realization quickly as to what was going on. “I am a basketball fan. I knew who he was when he walked in the door. Of course, some persons who were in the rear of the church noticed him also. You can’t not,” Sanders laughed as he spoke to The Sporting News.
