OKAFOR POWERS DUKE TO WIN OVER ELON.

Happy birthday to the big fella ! Celebrated his birthday by going for 25 and 20

With the win, Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski is now eight victories shy of career win No. 1,000

Blue Devils move to 9-0 with a 75-62 victory over Elon. Duke has now won 27 straight games in the month of December.

Last 20/20 performance by a Blue Devil was Elton Brand (21/21) in 1998 vs. Fresno State. Okafor has 25/20 tonight.

22 rebounds by Miles Plumlee the highest in a game in the Coach K era. Okafor has 20 right now with 1:35 to play.

“We’re not happy with our performance…. We did win and I’m happy about that. And it’s my birthday.”

Jahlil Okafor said his teammates apologized to him for missing their wide-open shots on his would-be assists.

I know it came against Elon, but Jahlil Okafor went for 25 points and 20 boards tonight. Player of Year frontrunner.

Duke’s Jahlil Okafor had 25, 20, + 3 blocks tonight in a win over Elon. I know it’s against a mid-major but that’s still a ridiculous line.

Coach K presser” I’m not satisfied way we played tonight… We didn’t do the hard things”..

Coach K presser ” we didn’t wanna do the tough things tonight.. Normal loses.. You wanna be good.. You can’t play normal”..

Coach K presser” human nature beat the hell out of us tonight”

“In order to be really good, you can’t be normal. Normal stays in the past and wants it easier…”—  Coach K

Coach K ” we were really young tonight”

Coach K presser” we are not even close to who we can be.. And that includes the Wisconsin game”..

Coach K presser” college basketball is built with interruptions” talking about the breaks.

Coach K on Okafor as security blanket: “It’s like sweeping dirt under the rug, man. The dirt’s still there. …

“…He was a big rug, but you’re still sweeping dirt under that thing.”

“How we ended the game, a Duke team should never do that.” –  Coach K

“Not making excuses. I lost my cool, did something duke players don’t do, shamed myself & my family”—  Sulaimon

Yep. He seemed bothered by it in post, too. RT : It is Coach K’s number 1 rule. Don’t do anything to embarrass yourself.

“We want to be satisfied with how we’re winning, and today, we weren’t.”
