Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski became the tenth college basketball coach to reach the 800 win mark on Saturday (March 1) when the Blue Devils mounted a come-from-behind 87-86 victory over nearby rival North Carolina State.
With the problems in college basketball, not to mention all of sports, Krzyzewski is a shining example of how to correctly succeed in the game. His teams have won three national titles (1991, 1992, 2001), and he has never been mentioned in the same breath as "NCAA violations." It can be done.
Congratulations, Coach K.
