Parker's Swan Song

Many players dream of just one state title in their high school careers, but for Duke-bound All-American Jabari Parker, he completed an unprecedented four-peat, and reflected on his high school career.

Simeon's Jabari Parker, a Duke signee, McDonald's All-American, and number two player in the country had nearly every accomplishment you could think of already on his resume, but one thing remained heading into Saturday night.

Parker and his Chicago Simeon team were in position to bring home a fourth-consecutive state championship, and behind Parker's 20 points (8 of 15 shooting) and 8 rebounds, the Wolverines did what only one other team in Illinois high school basketball history had done, winning four state titles in as many years. With Duke assistant Jeff Capel in attendance, Parker shined and led his team to history.

In this special to The Devil's Den, I spoke with Parker after the game about his best high school moments and what he's looking forward to at Duke.
