Duke freshman Jabari Parker is passing up his final three years of eligibility to enter the NBA draft.
Duke freshman Luol Deng will make himself available for the NBA Draft, but will keep open his option of returning to school by not hiring an agent, a published report said Tuesday.
Duke had Luol Deng and Xavier didn't, which proved to be the difference Sunday.
Late in the game, Luol Deng didn't let Duke lose its way, writes Andy Katz.
Reserve Luol Deng scored 15 points, and Duke (No. 5 ESPN/USA Today; No. 4 AP) held Portland to three first-half baskets in an 84-43 victory Sunday night.
(2) DUKE 82, PACIFIC 69
Expectations are higher than ever for freshmen, but Duke just may have one capable of playing a lead role.
