Jahlil Okafor was not able to catch the game tonight, but he tweeted out to Duke Blue Devil fans that “help is on the way. Much thanks to the Chicago native for the tweet, which will delight many of Blue Devil Nation.
Had practice so I couldn't even watch the game. heard we lost a tough one. Help is on the way soon. Duke fans we'll be fine.

Okafor committed recently to the Blue Devils and cited both academics and the possibility of winning a lot of games as key factors. Those are two pretty good things to focus on, and especially when they are placed in that order in level of importance. That is just my soapbox opinion about it, but always willing to consider other points of view as well.
Forward Aaron Gordon had a versatile effort on the other end which resulted in a victory with 10 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and two blocks. Fans in Durham cannot wait for Okafor to suit up, and sometimes we forget about ESPN top five ranked player Tyus Jones coming along as well.
