They have arrived.
The nation’s top two prospects, Kansas forward Andrew Wiggins and Duke forward Jabari Parker, announced their arrivals on campus in a big way at both schools’ annual Midnight Madness practice/scrimmage.
Parker threw down on center Marshall Plumlee and forward Josh Harrison, going up-and-under the rim and slamming it home with one hand on two of Duke’s big men.
As for Wiggins, he didn’t have one moment that sent shockwaves through the college hoops world. Instead, he showed off his whole game, proving that he can step back and knock down a three just as easily as he can throw down on someone.
(Note: Wiggins highlights don’t begin until around the 0:58 mark)
Both players won’t see the court for a few more weeks—Duke and Kansas kick off their seasons on November 9, with the Blue Devils hosting Davidson and the Jayhawks hosting Louisiana-Monroe—but if the above videos are any indication, basketball fans are going to be in for a treat.
Oh, and circle your calendars: Kansas and Duke play each other on November 12 in Chicago.
