Mike Krzyzewski Wins his 900th Game at Duke


Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(DURHAM, N.C.) — Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski added another chapter to his legendary coaching resume as he won his 900th game at Duke after the team’s 78-56 win over Florida Sate on Saturday.

Krzyzweski is the all-time leader career victories in men’s Division I with 973, and he joins Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim as the only coaches to have 900 wins with one program.

“That’s a lot of wins,” Krzyzewski said. “I thank Duke for keeping me. I’ve been blessed with being at one of the greatest schools in the world. Great schools don’t necessarily always have great people in command. The school has. …We have a good thing going here and I’ve been blessed to be here for over three decades and take advantage of that.”

As far as the game itself, Jabari Parker and Rodney Hood led the way for the Blue Devils on Saturday. Hood led Duke with 18 points and had nine rebounds. Parker scored 14 points, had 14 rebounds, and also had three steals.
