DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Freshman phenom Jabari Parker went coast-to-coast with rebounds, Rodney Hood slashed to the rim and Andre Dawkins knocked down 3-pointers.
During Duke's first public intrasquad scrimmage of the preseason, this up-tempo team barely resembled last year's group.
The scrimmage was the centerpiece of Duke's ''Countdown to Craziness'' celebration Friday - an annual night of frivolity before coach Mike Krzyzewski's team gets down to the serious business of the season.
Krzyzewski told the crowd during the scrimmage that ''we're trying to change the style of play'' and that ''we're going to play a lot faster.''
Parker had 16 points in one 15-minute scrimmage. The first 10 points of the game were scored by players who didn't see a minute of court time at Duke last season.
