Despite a tough shooting night in front of the hometown crowd, Jabari Parker was still capable of finishing with a stellar all-around game.
The Chicago native ended his evening with 10 points on 4-for-13 shooting and eight rebounds while also displaying great intensity on the defensive end. He also stole two passes and blocked two shots.
Parker was the subject of one of the more anticipated matchups of the night with Andrew Wiggins, the top ranked player in the class of 2013. The Duke commit was the former occupant of that top ranking until Wiggins decided to reclassify at the beginning of the season.
A do-it-all forward, Parker will enter his freshman season with an inordinate amount of pressure to succeed.
He is a program-changer with a vast array of skill within his game. Parker possesses the rare combination of talent, size and intelligence to become a player of the year candidate in what could be his only season at Duke.
Already labeled as the best player for the Blue Devils next year, the consensus top three ranked senior should have no problem answering each and every challenge that will come his way at the college level.
