This is Mike Krzyzewski’s 26th Sweet 16 appearance, which is — of course — the all-time record. The Blue Devils won a thriller vs. Tom Izzo and Michigan State in the Round of 32 on Sunday.
The win was Krzyzewski’s 99th NCAA Tournament victory of his career. A win over the Red Raiders would mean a 100th postseason win for Krzyzewski — and the start of an exclusive club.
Krzyzewski has amassed numerous NCAA Tournament records over his illustrious career, including 12 Final Four appearances and 5 National Championships — both are high-water marks in the modern era.
Duke and Texas Tech have one prior meeting — a regular season game in 2018 that the Blue Devils won 69-58. That season ended with Duke losing to Michigan State in the Elite Eight and with Texas Tech reaching the National Championship game.
