Krzyzewski gives his thoughts on how much coaching experience helps in tournament games:
I think it has some significance, there’s no question about it. If you’re visiting Paris, it’s nice to have a guide who knows what the heck is going on in Paris. So you can be a guide to your team. What you have to do, though, if you have been in it a number of times, is make sure that you get into the moment of your players and not your moment as the veteran. … I think one of the main things where it helps is the people around you, your staff.
