Jabari Parker is hoping to become Dukes latest one-and-done star to become the No. Brandon Bollig Jersey . 1 pick in the NBA draft. The 6-foot-8 All-American forward said Thursday hell enter the NBA draft after being the highest-scoring freshman in Duke history. He was also the first freshman to lead the Blue Devils in scoring and rebounding, and the first freshman in three decades to be selected team MVP. Now he has the chance to do what Kyrie Irving did in 2011: follow a one-year stay at Duke by being the first name called in the June draft. Coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a statement Thursday it was "an honour for us to have him in our program." In an essay posted on SI.com, Parker said the NBA offers him the best chance to develop both as a player and off the court. "I realize how much of a privilege and an honour it is to join the ranks of the NBA," Parker wrote. "I will do everything in my power to help deliver championships to the franchise that drafts me. At the same time, I recognize the obligation to represent the league in an admirable way off the court." Parker played in high school at Chicagos Simeon Career Academy and was frequently mentioned along with Kansas Andrew Wiggins as possible No. 1 picks before ever playing a college game. Parker led the Atlantic Coast Conference with an average of 8.7 rebounds while his 19.1 points were second only to North Carolina States T.J. Warren, who entered the NBA draft last week. "Jabari could not have been better," Krzyzewski said. "He is the epitome of what you would want a basketball player to be -- outstanding every day on the practice court and in the classroom and a very humble young man. "He had a fantastic freshman year and is so deserving of the opportunity to play in the NBA and follow his dream." Parker is listed as the No. 2 draft prospect on Chad Fords Top 100 on ESPN.com, the No. 2 pick in a mock draft on NBAdraft.net and No. 3 on DraftExpress.com. It had long been believed that Duke would be a one-year pit stop for Parker on his way to the pros. But even late into the season, he insisted he was undecided, saying he wanted to play at the level that would best help him grow. When he received the USBWAs Tisdale Award as the nations top freshman this week, he said he planned to meet with Krzyzewski and reach a decision Wednesday. In his SI.com essay, Parker said he had "gotten pretty attached to life at Duke and I dont want to utter the word goodbye." He also noted that the careers of professional basketball players -- his father, Sonny, played six seasons in the NBA -- last only so long. "The lucky ones play until their mid-30s," Parker said. "With that perspective, I shrink my professional career with each year that I remain in college. Its ironic, but true." Parker -- the fifth Duke player to enter the draft as a freshman -- said he planned to continue working toward a college degree. He is Mormon and said he would put a two-year mission on hold. From Day 1, he and Rodney Hood -- a redshirt sophomore transfer from Mississippi State -- were the focal points for a Duke team that spent much of the season in the top 10 and looked like a Final Four contender. But Duke (26-9) ended the season with a loss to Virginia in the ACC tournament final and a shocking loss to Mercer in its NCAA tournament opener. Hood hasnt announced whether he will enter the draft, though Krzyzewski said "I wish we had him for more than one year" after Dukes ACC tournament win against Clemson last month. Regardless, Duke is bolstered by the nations No. 1 recruiting class, led by top overall recruit Jahlil Okafor along with top-10 prospects Tyus Jones and Justise Winslow. Rourke Chartier Jersey . A night later, he was back to help lead a rout of the Detroit Pistons. John Wall had 20 points and 11 assists, and Beal scored 10 of his 15 points during the second quarter as Washington pulled away for a 106-82 victory on Saturday. Logan Couture Jersey . Louis, MO (SportsNetwork. http://www.officialsharksnhlshop.com/kevin-labanc-jersey/ . - The New York Rangers have momentum, a unified locker room and Henrik Lundqvist.ORLANDO, Fla. - Adam Scott didnt have to look as far down the leaderboard to find players who suddenly are a real threat to win at Bay Hill. He described them as players who are "hungry to win," and Scott served them up an appetizer Saturday in the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Staked to a seven-shot lead at the start of the third round, the Masters champion hit enough loose shots and missed just enough par putts to lose more than half his lead and turn his quest to be No. 1 in the world into a bigger battle that he would have preferred. Scott made a 7-foot par putt on the final hole for a 1-under 71, giving him a three-shot lead over Keegan Bradley going into Sunday. "I think Ive got to go out and try to win the golf tournament (Sunday)," Scott said. "Im not trying to win the No. 1 ranking. Ive got a bunch of guys breathing down my neck who all have had nice rounds today and are feeling pretty good about the way theyre playing going into tomorrow. So Im going to have to play a pretty sharp round of golf and not open the door at all." Scott was at 15-under 201. Bradley birdied his last three holes, taking on the flag at the 18th with a 9-iron from 167 yards that narrowly cleared the rocks framing the lake and settled 4 feet from the flag. That was the final touch on an eight-birdie round of 66 that put him in the final group. "I just kind of like that underdog role," Bradley said. "I like knowing that Ive got to go out there and play well. It really gets me excited. And playing in the final group with one of the best players in the world at Arnold Palmers tournament is what we all dream to do. Tomorrow is going to be a really fun day." Any other year at Bay Hill, he might have been referring to Tiger Woods. Woods, the two-time defending champion at Bay Hill and No. 1 in the world, withdrew before the tournament because of recurring back pain. Scott has a chance to replace him at No. 1 in the world with a victory, though he wouldnt take over at the top until the week before the Masters. But theres too much golf, and now too many players, for Scott to think that far ahead. Matt Every (66) and Jason Kokrak (67) were four shots behind, both with a chance to win on the PGA Tour for the first time. Chesson Hadley and Francesco Molinari of Italy each had a 69 and were another shot behind. Hadley, who won the Puerto Rico Open two weeks ago, caan qualify for the Masters with a high finish. Chris Tierney Jersey. He likely would need to be in sixth place or better to be solidly inside the top 50 in the world. Scott was never satisfied with the seven-shot lead, and he still felt comfortable with a three-shot advantage going to Sunday. "When youve got the lead, you have to work for it," he said. "Im still in good shape." Five holes into the third round, his seven-shot lead already had been trimmed to one. Scott three-putted from 60 feet on the opening hole, an indication of how fast the greens have become at Bay Hill, and he hit a poor chip to 12 feet on the fifth hole to drop another shot. Hadley applied the early pressure with four birdies through the sixth hole to get within one shot. Scott wasnt aware of this. He doesnt sound as though he would have been surprised, anyway. "When you dont start birdie-birdie today, then you know the other guys have got nothing to lose and theyre going for it," he said. "Theyve got to close the gap. It doesnt surprise me at all. You think seven is a lot, but its not really, especially over 36 holes. If I was seven back at any other tournament, I would think I could still win." Scott laid up on the par-5 sixth and hit wedge to 2 feet. And after a few long birdie putts on the 10th and 15th holes restored the cushion, he two-putted from 60 feet for birdie on the par-5 16th to bring his lead back to five shots. Bradley birdied the 18th. Scott missed a 5-foot par putt on the 17th, and then the 33-year-old Australian nearly had one more wobble. His birdie putt on the 18th slid about 7 feet by the hole. Scott made that coming back for par, which he hopes will be a small measure of momentum he can carry into the final round. "I missed two par putts shorter than that," he said. "To miss another would have opened the door a little bit too much for my liking." Bradley made six birdies on the back nine, including the last three holes. He had a good look at eagle on the 16th and missed the 15-foot putt, made a putt just inside 25 feet for birdie on the 17th and then took on the flag on the 18th, even though caddie Steve "Pepsi" Hale was wanting him to play slightly more conservatively. "I was going right at it," Bradley said of his 9-iron. "He was nervous. I knew the whole way it was going to cover and be perfect. But it worked out."
