Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski is now a win shy of career victory one thousand.
The Blue Devils topped Pitt 79-65 last night at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Afterward, Coach K downplayed any special meaning for win 999.
"It means we’re 16-and-two. That’s exactly what that means," Krzyzewski says. "And hopefully we can be 17-and-two in the next game we play."
Krzyzewski has more wins than any college basketball coach in men's history. Duke's next game is in New York against St. John's on Sunday.
Coach K be like, "I got 999 problems and winning ain't 1". @ESPNCBB
