You gotta be good — well great — to get Coach K to make a special trip to Atlanta.
Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski is scheduled to attend Miller Grove’s game at Douglass High at 7 p.m. Tuesday, according to Miller Grove coach Sharman White.
And who is Coach K here to see? None other than Tony Parker, one of the nation’s top juniors with more than 40 scholarship offers.
Parker is a 6-foot-9, 270-pound power forward who averages 19.5 points, 14 rebounds and 3 blocked shots.
“Coach K isn’t coming for a casual visit — Duke loves Tony and they want to sign him very badly,” White said. “He’s a 6-9 guy who can make things happen in the paint. They like his ability to score, and they think he’s a great kid — a ‘Duke kind of kid.’”
Parker, who has built a close relationship with Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt, says he has no favorites.
“It’s exciting that Duke will be here,” Parker said. “They obviously have a great program and I’m definitely considering them.”
