Durham, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Jahlil Okafor had 28 points and eight rebounds as No. 2 Duke routed Boston College in the ACC opener for both teams on Saturday.
Okafor was 7-of-11 from the field and 14-of-17 from the foul line for the Blue Devils (13-0, 1-0 ACC), who have won each of their 13 games by double- digit margins. Quinn Cook tallied 15 points, while Rasheed Sulaimon added 11 points off the bench in the victory.
Duke posted its ninth 13-0 start in school history and extended the nation's longest home winning streak to 41 games.
Olivier Hanlan netted 22 points to lead Boston College (7-5, 0-1), which has dropped two of its last three games on the heels of a four-game winning streak.
"I thought we became undisciplined at the game's biggest moments," Eagles coach Jim Christian said.
Boston College stayed within striking distance over the first 13 minutes as a Patrick Heckmann layup pulled it within 25-20.
Duke, though, ripped off the next 13 points to pull away. Okafor netted six straight points before Sulaimon capped the surge with a layup for a 38-20 Blue Devils advantage.
"I thought our defense the last 8-10 minutes in the first half was unbelievable," Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said.
Duke was up 38-22 at the break and led by as many as 24 over the final 20 minutes.
The Blue Devils have won seven of their last eight ACC openers ... Duke has won 18 of the 20 meetings between the schools, including all eight of its home tilts ... Tyus Jones had just three points on 0-of-5 shooting to go with three assists for Duke.
