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. The momentum-shifting play opened up a five-point Blue Devils’ advantage against a pesky Pirates team late in the second half. 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.
Big departure from Clipper Land.
Should be a good time.
