As if he wasn't already, Duke forward Jabari Parker officially put himself on the national map Tuesday night with his performance in the Blue Devils' 94-83 loss to Kansas in the nightcap of the Champions Classic held at the United Center.
But he also put himself into the Duke record book.
The Chicago native scored 27 points, which combined with his 22-point effort in Duke's season opener against Davidson made him the all-time leader in Blue Devils' history for points scored through two career games, per the Charlotte Observer's Laura Keeley.
His 49 points surpassed Luol Deng, who scored 41 points in his first two games as a Blue Devil. Deng, who opted for the NBA Draft after one season, scored 21 points against Detroit and poured in 20 more against Pacific to begin his collegiate career. Deng was in attendance for the game, along with a handful of other Bulls who had alma maters playing in the exhibition double-header -- Mike Dunleavy and Carlos Boozer also attended Duke; Marquis Teague and Nazr Mohammed were there for Kentucky while Kirk Hinrich showed his Kansas colors.
Here are the top five leaders for most points scored through two Duke games, also per Keeley:
For fun, here are some notable Duke alums and their point totals through two games:
It's safe to say that Parker, though just two games into his career, has found himself in some pretty impressive company.
