Love him or hate him—and unless you’re a Duke fan, it’s probably the latter—Coach K came through today with a pretty cool move after the Blue Devils were stunned by Mercer.
After devoting most of his press conference to singing the Bears’ praises, Krzyzewski headed into the visiting locker room to congratulate Mercer in person. “If we got beaten, at least we got beaten by a hell of a basketball team,” he said. This was met by stunned silence and at least one audible “Oh my god.”

Anyway. You may continue with your Duke schadenfreude.
