Duke makes short work of Wofford in ACC tune-up

Jan 1, 2015 - 6:24 AM Durham, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Jahlil Okafor totaled 24 points and eight rebounds as No. 2 Duke remained perfect with an 84-55 decision over Wofford at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Justise Winslow added 16 points and Quinn Cook picked up 15 for the Blue Devils (12-0), who will put their unblemished record on the line in their ACC opener on Saturday against Boston College.

"We played well and we beat a really good team today. They're a hard team to defend," Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "We played so hard in the second half and so together. I'm really pleased with the result."

Karl Cochran posted 13 points and five rebounds for the Terriers (9-4), who also begin their conference slate three days from now.

"I was really proud," Wofford head coach Mike Young said. "I can't say there have been many times in my career when we got our fannies whipped by 29 or whatever it was and I was proud."

After four ties, the visitors led only once in the contest, 15-14, with just over nine minutes gone in the first half after Cochran drained a triple.

Duke surged ahead with the next eight points and largely maintained that close margin through intermission. Another Cochran triple pulled Wofford within 26-24, but a three-point play by Okafor provided breathing room and the Blue Devils went to the break up 41-34.

Amile Jefferson's shot provided the hosts a 48-34 edge less than two minutes into the second half. Eric Garcia's bucket made it 52-43 just over two minutes later, but Duke embarked on an 11-2 run to put away its challengers for good.

Jefferson capped the surge at 63-45 with 10:21 remaining after grabbing a defensive board off a Spencer Collins miss from long distance then taking it the length of the floor for a layup.

Duke refused to take its foot off the gas in the latter stages, and back-to- back threes by Grayson Allen and Cook capped the rout.
