Krzyzewski’s career is filled with remarkable facts like that, but this one jumps to the top of the list. Duke was a proud program before Krzyzewski’s arrival in 1980-81. It had already featured in four Final Four’s and made it to two National Championship Games.
As for this season, Duke is once again a national title contender. The Blue Devils are tied with Notre Dame atop the ACC standings and hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Fighting Irish.
Duke will spend the next few weeks battling for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Blue Devils have four losses this season, but none have been by more than five points.
Duke hosts Wake Forest on Tuesday.
