CHICAGO (AP) – Andrew Wiggins scored 16 of his 22 points in the second half, outplaying Jabari Parker down the stretch and helping No. 5 Kansas knock off fourth ranked Duke 94-83 Tuesday night.

Parker, a former prep star at nearby Simeon High School, had 27 points, nine rebounds and three steals in a spectacular homecoming. But it was his fellow freshman star that made the biggest plays in the final minutes of a taut thriller between two storied programs.

Wiggins drained a stepback jumper to give the Jayhawks an 85-81 lead with 1:33 to go, and then had a fast break dunk after a steal by Perry Ellis. Wiggins held his arms out and yelled after the big jam.

Ellis finished with 24 points, and Wiggins also had 10 rebounds for the Jayhawks.
