Coach K apologizes, admits he was critical of Dillon Brooks after game

Coach K Dillon Brooks

Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski admitted on Saturday that he’d been critical of Oregon’s Dillon Brooks in the handshake line.

Coach K issued an apologetic statement owning up to the fact that he’d been critical of Brooks’s perceived showboating as the Ducks guard made a three-pointer late in Oregon’s 82-68 win over Duke. He also apologized for, in his words, having “reacted incorrectly” to a reporter’s question about the exchange, which he claimed didn’t happen.

Brooks was the one who originally told the press that Krzyzewski had told him he shouldn’t be “showing out,” which Coach K outright lied about in his postgame press conference. One wonders if this apology ever would have come if not for the audio unearthed of the exchange by CBS. Better late than never, I suppose.
