Coach K, 75, was seen with his hands in his face during the early moments of the first half but seemed to shake off whatever was ailing him. He was tended to by the Duke medical trainer several times during the first half.
Coach-in-waiting Jon Scheyer is now on the bench for the Blue Devils, who lead 60-46 with under 11 minutes remaining.
I’m told #Duke’s Coach K’s okay, just feeling “lightheaded.”— Jordan Schultz (@Schultz_Report) February 16, 2022
Steve Forbes just asked the Duke bench from afar if Coach K was OK. Carrawell gave him a thumbs up.— Brian McLawhorn (@BrianMcLawhorn) February 16, 2022
Krzyzewski is in his final season with the Blue Devils, and will retire at the end of the year. Duke’s next scheduled game is against Florida State on Saturday in Durham, where FSU was a 79-78 overtime winner in Tallahassee on January 18th.
Duke looks to be fine to claim a victory without their leader at Cameron Indoor Stadium tonight, but we’ll see when he’s able to return.
