Coach K breaks total career wins record

NEW YORK - Mike Krzyzewski, the coach who led a team of NBA stars to Olympic gold in Beijing and will try to guide the U.S. to a repeat in London, became the winningest coach in major college basketball on Tuesday.

Krzyzewski’s Duke University Blue Devils defeated Michigan State 74-69 to give “Coach K” his 903rd career win, breaking a tie with Bob Knight - who was Krzyzewski’s coach in the Army and his mentor when he became a coach himself. Third-year guard Andre Dawkins had 26 points for the Blue Devils, who took control with a 20-1 run that gave them a 61-41 lead with 9:17 remaining.
