Coach K has strong message for haters
Mike Krzyzewski looked like a new man on Monday night.
Coach K’s Duke Blue Devils avenged an embarrassing road loss at NC State earlier this season by putting the hurt on the Wolfpack at Cameron Indoor Stadium on Monday. After losing 88-66 to NC State last month, Duke won the rematch 88-69, nearly by the same score.
Krzyzewski looked completely rejuvenated during the game. He was full of energy, passion, and even chest-bumped his players.

He also slapped hands with everyone he saw after the game:

Then Coach K delivered the strongest message of all on the postgame radio show. He said people should respect his legacy before criticizing him.
“When you question my coaching come into Cameron and look up at the ceiling and see if you should do that” – Coach K
Let’s go. Bring the fire.

Coach K came under some fire after Duke lost consecutive games. They lost by 12 at Wake Forest and then by two at Virginia. They’re now 24-6 and seem to be back on track for a possible high seed entering the NCAA Tournament.
