Duke gave Mike Krzyzewski the 700th win of his coaching career last night, but had to work long and hard to put away Toledo at Cameron Indoor Stadium.


Duke won 82-54 in front of an announced crowd of 9,314 to stay unbeaten through six games. Playing for the first time since Dec. 4 because of exams, Duke sometimes struggled and didn't pull away until 12 minutes were left in the second half.

Daniel Ewing led an 18-7 scoring run in the first eight minutes after halftime that broke open a close game and gave Duke a 61-38 lead. The advantage was too much for Toledo to overcome, and Krzyzewski had reached another coaching milestone.

In his 30th season overall and his 25th at Duke, Krzyzewski improved his record to 700-240. He became the third ACC coach to reach the 700-victory mark and the 17th coach overall in major-college play to get there.

Krzyzewski thanked two people for making his career and 700 wins possible: Bob Knight and Tom Butters. Knight was Krzyzewski's coach at Army. Butters was the athletics director who hired the 32-year-old Krzyzewski from Army in 1980.

Krzyzewski said that he could have no better teacher of basketball and coaching than Knight, now at Texas Tech after a long and successful career at Indiana.

As a longtime die-hard Tarheel fan, I'm not fond of Duke one bit. But tonight I'll give Coach K props because he is a great coach and this is a big milestone for him. Roy Williams has put his stamp on the UNC program already and I look forward to some heated UNC-Duke ACC rivalries come February and March.

I hadn't realized that Chaney was on that list, he used to play semi-pro in my home town, I'm told.

Temple's got a decent team this year but Coach K could catch Chaney by the end of the season. It might be tough to get Lute, Arizona is good as usual.

Temple always has one of the hardest schedules in the NCAA...
