NEW YORK (AP) — It was an average performance from Jabari Parker, and it drew praise worthy of another stellar effort by the Duke freshman.
"He's a natural," Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski said after Parker had 23 points and 10 rebounds in an 80-63 victory over UCLA on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden. "In different sports there are people who are naturals. Jabari is a natural. He can become even better. He embraces the moment."
Bruins coach Steve Alford was impressed with the 6-foot-8 Chicago native.
