Now, Duke waits on NBA decisions from Hood, Parker
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Duke’s latest one-and-done could be followed by another one of an entirely different kind.
After losing their NCAA tournament opener for the second time in three years, the Blue Devils can only hope their star freshman doesn’t turn pro after one season.
Duke began the season as a legitimate favorite to reach their 12th Final Four under coach Mike Krzyzewski.
But the only game they have left is the waiting game until freshman Jabari Parker – and redshirt sophomore transfer Rodney Hood – figure out their future plans.
It had long been believed that Duke was merely a pit stop for Parker on his way to the NBA.
He says he hasn’t decided anything yet and neither has Hood, a transfer from Mississippi State.
