The Dan Patrick Show interview

17 Sep, 2010

Krzyzewski talks about the United States winning the World Championship:

This was really one of the big wins ever for USA Basketball for a number of reasons. One, just to win a World Championship which we haven’t done very often, haven’t done in 16 years. Two it gets us qualified for the Olympics. The World Champion has one of the spots guaranteed in the 2012 Olympics. It makes sure we don’t have to qualify next summer so we don’t have to play next summer. It also continues us in good stead, gold standard stead by winning the Olympics and now the World Championships. This year the under 17, under 18, and under 19 teams also won gold. It’s a fantastic year for USA Basketball.
