The New York Times - Coach Krzyzewski

"There are 902 reasons why Krzyzewski is poised to set the record for victories in men’s Division I college basketball, one for every game he has won in a five-decade career that began at Army in 1975 and includes four national championships in 31 seasons at Duke. But there are also a few consistent themes that have emerged during his years on the bench, from his motivational skills to his work ethic and, of course, his connection to Bob Knight. It is Knight, Krzyzewski’s coach at Army and his longtime mentor, whom Krzyzewski has tied atop the career victories list. That makes it all the more appropriate that Knight will be at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday to see Krzyzewski get his first chance to set the record, when No. 6 Duke faces Michigan State."
