DURHAM, N.C. -- All those freshmen at Duke made it look easy to score in their first college game. It helped when everyone kept making those extra passes.
Preseason All-American Jahlil Okafor scored 19 points in his debut, and the fourth-ranked Blue Devils had 30 assists in a 113-44 rout of Presbyterian on Friday night in the opening round of the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic.
"I felt comfortable from tap to finish," Okafor said. "I didn't feel uncomfortable at any point."
Desean Murray had 14 points for the Blue Hose (0-1).
The Blue Devils are counting on one of the nation's top recruiting classes to replace Jabari Parker and Rodney Hood, who jumped early to the NBA after last season, and help carry them to their 12th Final Four under coach Mike Krzyzewski.
They sure didn't get much of a test from Presbyterian. Duke built a 20-point lead in fewer than 10 minutes and went up by 30 with 6 minutes before the break.
The freshmen combined to score Duke's first 12 points and an upperclassman didn't even attempt a shot until Amile Jefferson missed off the glass roughly 4 1/2 minutes in.
Okafor -- the third freshman in five years picked to The Associated Press' preseason All-America team -- was clearly the most dominant player on the floor.
His 9-of-10 shooting night included a series of dunks, layups and jumpers -- including one jump shot while falling down that pushed Duke's lead to 38-8 with 6:10 before halftime.
"We're learning how to play with him," Krzyzewski said.
