Mike Krzyzewski loves making history at Madison Square Garden. He won his 903rd game there, passing Bobby Knight on the all-time win list back on November 15, 2011. Then on Sunday, he got win number 1,000 when his Blue Devils rallied to beat St. John’s.
Duke was down 10 with just over 8 1/2 minutes left. Coach K made some adjustments. Marshall Plumlee came in and helped. Quinn Cook and Tyus Jones made several crucial shots and the Blue Devils got to the winner’s circle.
I will repeat what I have said on TV. Mike Krzyzewski is the best coach in any sport. I rank them: 1-Coach K; 2-Gregg Popovich of the Spurs; 3-Bill Belichick of the Patriots; 4-Geno Auriemma of Connecticut women’s basketball and 5-Nick Savan of Alabama football.
