Sunday afternoon Duke Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski won his 1,000th game against St. John’s. He’s the first coach in D-1 history to reach this milestone. The man they call Coach K has on the Duke sideline since I was a child and it is crazy that he still is one of the best in the game if not thee best.
The 40 year head coach has a career record of 1000-308, that is a crazy...

There aren’t many people on this planet who can say that they’ve been there every step of the way with Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski on his way to 1,000 career victories. But his wife, Mickie, who married the longtime Blue Devil on the day of his graduation from West Point back in 1969, can certainly make that claim. Sunday, after Krzyzewski’s team overcame a 10-point second...

Duke’s legendary Mike Krzyzewski picked up win number 999 Monday night, a 79-65 survival against a tough Pittsburgh squad. Once again, the bulk of Duke’s defensive game was a 2-3 zone defense. The 67-yard-old coach is diverse and eclectic, but the shift to predominantly a 2-3 zone over the last two games from a guru known for his...
Newsflash: Michael Jordan didn’t go to Duke. He considered Duke, but he went to North Carolina. On October 29, 1980, Mike Krzyzewski wrote “Mike” Jordan a letter about Jordan’s decision to eliminate Duke as an option.
It’s fairly interesting, especially when you read it in Coach K’s voice.
Maybe Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski had a crystal ball in October of 1980 realizing that he wouldn’t have a chance at coaching the future Dream Team if he didn’t keep his tact with the best player in the country.
That player was Michael Jordan.
Jordan, who rejected the Dukies, eventually committed to Dean Smith and North Carolina in April of 1981. The concession letter below...

Vitale first laid that claim on television during Duke’s 63-52 win over...

Jahlil Okafor is one of the most impressive players in college basketball, and against Pitt tonight, he is showing off an impressive set of post moves that show why he is the favorite to go first overall in the next NBA Draft. With a few minutes left in the first half, Okafor threw a nasty spin move on forward Ryan Luther, and finished with an excellent reverse layup.
A year ago, Duke’s first trip in school history to the Carrier Dome to face Syracuse created an instant classic. The same may be true of...
