Freshman phenom Jabari Parker chose to attend Duke despite having interest from schools closer to home. In his intimate profile, Jeff Benedict explains Parker's decision and describes his tight-knit relationship with coach Mike Krzyzewski. The two appear together on one of Sports Illustrated's regional covers this week.

You can read the entire profile here, after a short ad.

The Wichita State Shockers appear on the other regional cover. The Shockers, one of two remaining undefeated teams in Division I (Syracuse is the other), face every opponent's best game after their Final Four run a year ago. Thomas Lake explores midmajor basketball in Kansas.
