UNC coach Williams: Jabari Parker was ‘possessed’

Duke Blue Devils freshman sensation Jabari Parker didn’t disappoint in what is likely his last home game with the Duke Blue Devils. In the season finale against the North Carolina Tar Heels, Parker scored a career-high 30 points and added 11 rebounds.

After the game, Tar Heels coach Roy Williams said Parker played like he was possessed.


“That was a tough night for us, and I think that some of Mike’s [Krzyzewski] comments after last game, that they didn’t have ‘it,’ well I agree with him. It’s hard to say what ‘it’ is, but whatever the hell it is, Jabari [Parker] found it.”


Jabari – Rodney [Hood] also – but Jabari, that was about as impressive I’ve seen in a long, long time. Again, whatever ‘it’ was, he was possessed. I thought tonight was a fantastic exhibition. Between Jabari and Rodney, we really had trouble trying to figure out a way to stop them, and at the end of the night, we still didn’t figure it out.


Both teams will now head into the ACC Tournament, which starts on March 12.
