rebounding advantage
#1
New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Mike Krzyzewski can now be known as Coach 1K. Dukes Hall of Fame leader became the first Division I mens head coach to record 1,000 career wins after the fifth-ranked Blue Devils rallied for a thrilling 77-68 victory over St. Johns in front of a capacity crowd at Madison Square Garden. The milestone result, which occurred on the same MSG court in which Krzyzewski ecplised mentor Bob Knight for the all-time Division I wins record back in 2011, was reached after Tyus Jones, Jahlil Okafor and Quinn Cook led the Blue Devils (17-2) on a 23-5 run that turned a 10-point deficit deep into the second half into a 74-66 lead with a minute to play. Jones netted nine of his game-high 22 points during the game-changing sequence, with 11 of Cooks 17 points came after halftime. Okafor also finished with 17 points while pulling down 10 rebounds and going 7-of-10 from the floor. St. Johns (13-6) nearly spoiled the celebration behind big efforts from SirDominic Pointer and Rysheed Jordan, but was held without a field goal for a six-minute stretch as Duke came charging back. Pointer ended with 21 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks. Jordan tallied 18 points, though just two came in the second half. All of Dukes offense during the pivotal surge came from its top trio, with Cook and Jones igniting the comeback with consecutive 3-point plays and Okafor converting one of his own on a second-chance attempt to trim the Red Storms advantage to just 61-60 with 6:35 left. After Cooks step-back triple shortly afterward sent the Blue Devils ahead, Okafor -- the other main attraction of a pro-New York Knicks crowd with visions of the presumptive No. 1 overall pick of this years NBA Draft playing for the hometown team -- scored on a strong post move and added another free throw to put the Blue Devils up 66-62 with 4:07 to go. Phil Greene IVs driving layup with 2:35 remaining finally ended St. Johns field goal drought, but it came after Jordan fouled Jones on a corner 3-point try and the freshman calmly sank all three free throws for a 69-63 advantage. St. Johns shot just 33.3 percent after the break after hitting at a 54.8 percent clip in the first half. A late trey by Jones and two Cook free throws all but sealed the outcome, with Cooks makes putting the Red Storm down by eight points entering the final minute. St. Johns trailed by as many as 11 points during a fast-paced first half that contained big momentum swings from both sides, with Jordan and Pointer spearheading a tear by the Red Storm over the final 12 minutes of the period. Jordan scored the first five points and Pointer recorded the final 10 of a 15-5 flurry that pulled St. Johns within 26-25, and the latter tied it at 28-28 moments later on a layup and free throw with 5:25 left in the half. Jordan delivered another 3-point play less than two minutes later, then followed with a jumper to give the Red Storm a 35-32 edge. St. Johns went into the break up 43-39 when DAngelo Harrison beat the buzzer on a deep 3 that appeared to come after the shot clock had expired. An 8-0 spurt, which Porter started with a thunderous baseline dunk and finished with a tip-in, extended the Red Storms lead to 53-43 early in the second half. Okafor also made his presence felt early on, totaling six of his 10 first-half points during a 16-3 run that staked Duke to a 21-10 lead less than eight minutes in.
