Jabari Parker has hinted that he may return to Duke next season after the team were eliminated from the NCAA championship today by Mercer.

Parker reportedly told ESPN's Andy Katz that his career with the Blue Devils is 'incomplete' and that it could affect his decision on whether or not to enter the NBA draft.

Duke were defeated by 14th seed Mercer by a score of 78-71 and Parker underwhelmed with just 14 points. The forward who prior to the tournament was considered to be among the candidates for the number one pick at the NBA draft. 

However, he shot just 4-14 from the field and recorded zero assists as the heavily favored Duke fell at the first stage of the tournament.

It might make sense for Parker to return to Cameron with yet another solid recruiting class to play alongside and another year of college basketball under his belt, he could have the chance to realistically challenge for the 2015 national title.
