How A UVa Fan Bluffed His Way Into The Huddle At The ACC Title Game

At halftime of Virginia's ACC tournament semifinal, Danny had an idea. He noticed all the Cavaliers staff members hovering around the team, and discerned what exactly gave them to the power to roam freely around the court: a suit with a Virginia-orange tie. One day and one trip to Walmart later, Danny was down on the… » 3/19/14 4:36pm 3/19/14 4:36pm

Coach K's Facebook Presence Does Not Come With A Sense Of Humor

Actually, Duke Had No Problems Getting Off The Court In Virginia Last…

Virginia fans stormed the court in Charlottesville last night, after the unranked Cavaliers defeated No. 3 Duke, 73-68, and Mike Krzyzewski was a bit rankled by the lack of protection for his team.

Maryland Scores Stunning Upset: Makes Mike Krzyzewski Sound Reasonable

Maryland upset Duke yesterday 83-81 and the students rushed the court after Quinn Cook's desperation half-court shot clanged off the rim.

Lance Thomas May Have Bought Improper Jewelry While Starting For Duke's…

Team USA Wins Basketball Gold, Beats Spain, Gets Mike Krzyzewski To Do…

Gold for the 2012 Dream Team proved to be a bit more elusive than expected, as foul trouble and a pesky Spanish team led to a 107-100 win, one locked up by a clever Chris Paul drive that led to coach Mike Krzyzewski leaping into the air as if he'd just purchased a Toyota. He's stepping down after today to allow… » 8/12/12 1:31pm 8/12/12 1:31pm

This Photo Of Team USA Sleeping On An Airplane Is The Best Thing Today

Kevin Love surreptitiously snapped this and posted it to Instagram, as Team USA flew from Barcelona to London last night.

Wait, Didn't Coach K Break The All-Time Wins Record Last Season?

Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski earned what was advertised as his 903rd career victory in Madison Square Garden last night, setting a new NCAA record. Odd as it is to imagine the Duke/Coach K publicity machine underselling something, it's worth noting that the 74-69 win over Michigan State could also be counted… » 11/16/11 4:10pm 11/16/11 4:10pm
