Krzyzewski comments on coaching his 1000th game:
Afterwards when I got together with family and former players and that was it. I really tried to downplay that with my team because Maryland is so good. They have done a great job with their team. It couldn’t be because we’re playing in my 1000th game that we’re gonna win. We had to prepare for it the same way. You put a lid on your emotions and then afterwards it was just neat to see so many players, managers and people that have been a part of our program for 30 years back and that was a nice thing.
