Tape Catches Coach K in Lie

March 28, 2016

Mike Krzyzewski, the Duke University's men's basketball coach, is legendary in the sport. His team suffered a tough loss Thursday night to the University of Oregon in the championship tournament. But much of the discussion since then hasn't been about the loss but about how one Oregon player reported that Krzyzewski told him during the handshakes that he shouldn't have taken a long shot as the game ended, since Oregon was ahead by more than enough points. Krzyzewski denied saying so, but after video was produced backing the player, Krzyzewski admitted that he had said pretty much what the player said, and apologized. Here are accounts from Slate and Deadspin.
