This afternoon, Mike Krzyzewski won his 1,000 game as Duke defeated St. John 77-68 at Madison Square Garden.  In a career that has spanned almost 40 years he has won by being flexible, but still respecting the game.   Today’s win was an example he put in Marshall Plumlee with his star freshman center Jahili Oakfor.    He handled the win with the typical humility and grace that made him a college basketball coaching legend.  Early in his Duke career there was talking of being fired in 1982-83 season, but three years later they made the first of 11 Final Four appearance.    He turns 68 in the three weeks, but I don’t see him retiring anytime soon.
