Duke freshman forward Jabari Parker continued his early-season brilliance with a 21-point, 10-rebound performance in only 19 minutes of play as the No. 6 Blue Devils took down UNC Asheville 91-55.

Parker had six turnovers, but also added four assists as he continues to score at a high level while also rebounding as well.

Rodney Hood had 18 points as well for Duke while Andre Dawkins chipped in 13 points off of the bench.

Duke continues to show a high-octane offense early in the season led by the duo of Parker and Hood. Most teams aren’t equipped slow down two wings of that size and skills and Duke will rely on them to do the brunt of the scoring most of the season.
