((Points + Rebounds + Assists + Steals + Blocks) - ((Field Goals Att. - Field Goals Made) + (Free Throws Att. - Free Throws Made) + Turnovers)).

Winslow had 19 points and 11 rebounds, and the fourth-ranked Blue Devils used a huge early run to rout No. 10 Notre Dame 90-60 on Saturday.
Okafor added 20 points and 10 rebounds. Matt Jones had a career-high 17 points off the bench, and Tyus Jones scored 12 for the Blue Devils (20-3, 7-3 Atlantic Coast Conference).
They shot 61 percent -- 81 percent in the first half -- and used an early 43-7 run to avenge their recent loss and give Notre Dame (21-4, 9-3) its worst loss since 1999.
Steve Vasturia had 15 points but top scorer Jerian Grant was held to just seven on 3-of-10 shooting for the Fighting Irish, who won the previous meeting 77-73 on Jan. 28.
This rematch was all Duke.
vs. NOTRE DAME(change from previous game)
- Jahlil Okafor +28 (+17)
- Justise Winslow +26 (-1)
- Tyus Jones +22 (+15)
- Quinn Cook +10 (-6)
- Amile Jefferson +6 (-6)
- Grayson Allen +7 (+7)
- Matt Jones +17 (+6)
- Marshall Plumlee +4 (+3)
Notes: Just an all around dominating performance from Duke and the freshman class. The trio of starters (Jones, Winslow, and Okafor) combined to score a +76. It’s the highest total for the trio in months. Much can be traced back to Winslow who seems finally healthy. As for Okafor, despite foul trouble the big man connected on just under 90 percent of his field goal attempts, went for 20 and 10 and hit both FTs. Were it not for three turnovers, he’d have topped 30 points again.
Winslow’s health no longer being a concern, the wing forward has posted three straight double-doubles and continues to factor into several areas including assists, blocks and steals.
Duke also got a boost from Matt Jones who scored a +17 thanks to good shooting (6-of-9) which resulted in 17 points.
