((Points + Rebounds + Assists + Steals + Blocks) - ((Field Goals Att. - Field Goals Made) + (Free Throws Att. - Free Throws Made) + Turnovers)).
For example, compare the following stat lines:
Player A: 17 points (5-of-22 FG, 7-9 FT), 8 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals, 4 turnovers.
Player B: 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 FT), 4 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 turnovers
Jahlil Okafor showed off all the moves -- a spin, a dribble drive, a short jumper -- that have made Duke's freshman big man possibly the nation's top player.
When he's playing like that, the Blue Devils have a shot to finish as the nation's best team right alongside him.
Okafor scored 18 of his 26 points in a dominating first half and top-seeded Duke beat San Diego State 68-49 on Sunday in the NCAA Tournament, sending the freshmen-led Blue Devils back to the Sweet 16 to continue their push for coach Mike Krzyzewski's fifth national title.
Fellow freshman Justise Winslow added 13 points and 12 rebounds for Duke, which shot 55 percent against the eighth-seeded Aztecs (27-9) two days after shooting 63 percent against 16th-seeded Robert Morris.
Okafor scored 21 on 9-for-11 shooting against the seriously undersized Colonials, then made 12 of 16 shots against the Aztecs -- who had size to wrestle with him but no way to stop him.
vs.SAN DIEGO STATE(change from previous game)
- Jahlil Okafor +32 (+11)
- Justise Winslow +31 (+11)
- Tyus Jones +9 (-9)
- Quinn Cook +14 (-15)
- Amile Jefferson +0 (-14)
- Grayson Allen +6 (+9)
- Matt Jones +2 (-4)
- Marshall Plumlee +1 (-17)
Notes: The combination of Winslow and Okafor proved to be unstoppable as the two players combined to score nearly two thirds of the team’s cumulative efficiency score. Okafor did it by hitting 12 of 16 shots, which isn’t anything new for the big man…and he added six boards and three blocks to top the +30 mark again.
Meanwhile, Winslow seemed on pace for another run at a triple-double early on. He finished with 12 points, 13 rebounds, and five assists. That would have been good enough for a strong score, but the Houston native added another three blocks and four steals to post a career high +31.
The only other significant scorers came from Cook’s (+14) and Tyus Jones (+9).

Notes:- Winslow’s continued hot streak has pulled the small forward’s season total to within nine of the third spot and 10 of second. A month ago it seemed as though Winslow had no chance to catch the starting guards.
- After taking a big lead following the win over North Carolina, Tyus Jones has fallen behind Cook for second.s
