Coach K got a technical foul for throwing his marker (Video)
The tech was called late in the first half and Coach K couldn’t believe it. Exasperated, he asked the officials what the tech was for and was told it was for throwing his marker at the end of a timeout.
The tech allowed Virginia to go to the free throw line, where they made both shots to go up 25-19.
Virginia won the game 72-63, giving them a split with Duke this season.
Coach K was pretty perplexed about the technical:
Coach K was asked about the technical. Said he had no clue why it was called. Tossed marker. Wasn't in reaction to or at official.

He called the technical foul “ridiculous” and “shameful,” according to the AP.
