The Big Ten/ACC Challenge isn’t slated to begin until Tuesday night, but already some teams in the ACC are chalking up a loss. Swapping in spelling for shooting, ESPN gathered some ACC players together for just one round of a makeshift spelling bee, asking them to spell Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski‘s last name. It was a tall order and one that none of the players were able to fill, including Duke’s own Tyler Thornton, but the far and away best attempt came from Maryland’s Nick Faust, who came up with the hippest spelling Coach K has presumably ever gotten: Kreyschewizzle. Check out the players butchering Coach K’s surname in the video below. Filed under: Anna Fogel, College Basketball, Headlines

ACC Players Struggle To Spell Krzyzewski (Video)

Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski has arguable one of the hardest names in sports to spell. So when the ACC basketball players were tasked with spelling it correctly, they understandably struggled mightily.
