Coach K shown on video lecturing Dillon Brooks
There was a controversy on Thursday about the postgame interaction between Oregon star Dillon Brooks and Duke Blue Devils head coach Mike Krzyzewski, and now we know exactly what was said.
After the game, Brooks said Coach K talked to him about his conduct, while Coach K denied it and said he simply congratulated the player.
Now we have video proof of the exchange:
It certainly sounds like Coach K was lecturing Brooks, telling him he was “too good for that.” “That” was throwing up a 3-pointer at the end of a blowout, seemingly like he was showing off.
Brooks acknowledged he needs to respect Duke and his opponents, but he also said he wasn’t going to change his behavior and that he would continue to be himself on the court.
Brooks’ Ducks will face Oklahoma in the West Region finals on Saturday.
