Jabari Parker turned good defense into efficient offense by grabbing a rebound and going the length of the court for a high-flying slam against East Carolina.

Parker’s 21-point performance helped sixth-ranked Duke hang on for a 83-74 win. The highly touted freshman became just the second player in school history to score at least 20 points in each of the first five games of his career.
