Mike Krzyzewski bristles at question from student reporter following loss to Louisville
Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski was not in the mood to discuss “the next step forward” for his team after the Blue Devils lost at Louisville on Saturday, 70-65. But that’s the question he was asked by a student reporter after the game.
Duke fell to 5-5 on the season.
“Why don’t we just evaluate this game,” Coach K said. “I’m not into what our next step forward is right now. We just finished a hard fought game. What’s your major? What’s your major at Duke? What’s your hardest class?
The reporter said econ.
Coach K replied, “OK, say you just had the toughest econ test in the world, and when you walked out, somebody asked you, ‘What’s your next step?’ You see what I mean. Do you have some empathy. Just give us time to evaluate this game and we’ll figure out, just like we always try to do.”
Coach K was understandably frustrated after it was his team’s third straight loss. The Blue Devils are also 3-3 in the ACC.
