Duke Blue Devils Mike Kryzyzewski

The Dan Patrick Show interview

7 Apr, 2010

Kryzyzewski speaks about his strategy in the final seconds of Duke’s NCAA championship victory:

Well, first of all, you can do it a number of different ways. And each game, you have to know what the game has done thus far. And the last 9 minutes of that game, Zoubek played with four fouls; the last 5 minutes, Lance Thomas played with four fouls. Going into overtime, for me, is a conservative way of looking at it. It’s not an alternative. I did not want to go into overtime. If we hit the free throw and they somehow hit a three, then we’re okay, we don’t lose. I wasn’t thinking for this game in that way.
