Coach Mike Krzyzewski is going to outlive us all. Or at the very least, he’s going to out-win us.
Saturday night, the Duke Blue Devils did what they did—they won a basketball game. This time, it would be at the expense of Utah Valley State (69-99). However, this isn’t just any old win for Krzyzewski.
It’s number 1,000… at Duke. That makes him the first men’s Division I coach to tally 1,000 wins at one school. Over his 43-year career, Coach K is 1,073-330.
Of that record, he is 1,000-271.
Of course, the college basketball season is only just beginning. Duke is going to keep winning. Moreover, coach Krzyzewski is going to keep winning. Because that’s all he does.
That’s all he ever does.
