After an Epic Battle With Michigan State, Duke Punches Its Ticket to the Sweet 16 | Latest News!

Coach Mike Krzyzewski’s illustrious career will continue as the Blue Devils upset the Spartans late in the game.

After the Blue Devils beat Michigan State in the second round of the men’s NCAA tournament on Sunday, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski’s illustrious career lives to see another day.

Duke was behind by five points with five minutes left in regulation before going on a furious run to save its season. With less than a minute to go, the Blue Devils’ defense and clutch shooting transformed a six-point deficit into a six-point lead, and clutch free throws and suffocating defense in the game’s final possessions helped them hold on for an 85–76 triumph.

Krzyzewski said in June that the 2021–22 season will be his final in college basketball, capping off one of the most illustrious coaching careers in history. The Blue Devils stepped up in the final battle between Michigan State coach Tom Izzo and Coach K, and are now on their road to the Sweet 16. The retirement celebration will have to be postponed.

Krzyzewski’s win was his 1,200th, making him the only coach in history to do it. It was also his 99th victory in the NCAA tournament.
