    Coach K 800 Wins Duke Coaching History

    The number one ranked team in the Maui Blue, the Duke Blue Devils just defeated the rampaging 4th ranked team Kansas Jayhawks in their home court. The Duke Blue Devils are once again on their way to another NCAA crown.

    The team was like the old Duke team who plays hard nosed basketball. They are like Military personnels who take orders from their general, Coach K. Coach K, like Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs is also a graduate of a Military Academy. Their style of coaching are almost the same. But most importantly they are successful head coaches.

    Indeed coach Mike krzyzewski or world-widely known Coach K due to his stint as a National Basketball Team Headcoach has once again captured a milestone. He has just won his 800th career college baketball game for the Duke Blue Devils.

    Coach K entered Duke in 1984. He had a 25-20 win loss card but look at him now. He has won 800 games. Great things really have their roots.

    He now joins the other 5 elite coaches who have won 800 games in one school.

    Duke is the defending National champions and they are playing like one because of Coach K's beliefs.

    As a person, Coach K never believes that when it is peaceful and quiet that is the perfect time to work hard and release some sweat.

    I've always believe him when he said these few important things that a coach must learn,

    I have a rule on my team: when we talk to one another, we look each other right in the eye, because I think it's tough to lie to somebody. You give respect to somebody.
    -Mike Krzyzewski

    I've been so fortunate in my life that my family has never been jealous of my success. They have shown true love and commitment to me by being supportive. They shared in it.
    Mike Krzyzewski

    I've tried to handle winning well, so that maybe we'll win again, but I've also tried to handle failure well. If those serve as good examples for teachers and kids, then I hope that would be a contribution I have made to sport. Not just basketball, but to sport.
    Mike Krzyzewski

    If you win a National Championship, or you win two, people think you have not only seen the Holy Grail, but you've embraced it. Basically, I do what a lot of people do, but I've been able to win.
    Mike Krzyzewski

    Imagination has a great deal to do with winning.
    Mike Krzyzewski

    Here's how Coach K does his job:
