Duke beats MSU behind Coach K’s championship approach


GREENVILLE, S.C. — Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski isn’t waiting for New Orleans to win a championship.

While the rest of the men’s Sweet 16 field celebrates punching their tickets, the No. 2 Blue Devils are steadily lapping them in their collection of hardware, the most recent coming Sunday in an 85–76 win over No. 7 Michigan State at Bon Secours Wellness Arena.

“That’s how we’re approaching it,” Krzyzewski said. “Every game is a championship. You have to beat a great team every time you play. It’s like a championship.”
