DURHAM, N.C. – The Duke men’s basketball team faces an early test this Tuesday when the fourth-ranked Blue Devils take on No. 5 Kansas at the United Center in Chicago, Ill., as part of the State Farm Champions Classic. The game will be a matchup of two of the four winningest programs in college basketball history, as Kansas ranks second all-time with 2,102 victories and Duke fourth with 2,002.

In addition to the matchup of college basketball titans, the game will also serve as a homecoming for Duke freshman and reigning ACC Rookie of the Week Jabari Parker, who starred at Chicago’s Simeon Career Academy. Parker was on hand to give his thoughts on returning to his hometown and facing one of the top teams in the nation. Check out the attached video for his take, as well as interviews with, sophomore captain Rodney Hood, senior captain Tyler Thornton and Blue Devil special assistant and Chicago native Jon Scheyer.
