Krzyzewski two wins away from tying Knight, Wooden


AP Sports Writer

DURHAM, NC (AP) -- If all goes well for Duke this weekend in California, Mike Krzyzewski will make history in a couple of different ways.

The top-seeded Blue Devils (32-4) leave for Anaheim, CA, on Tuesday for the West regional semifinals. There's a chance that by the time Duke returns home, Krzyzewski will have his 902nd career victory.

Wins over Arizona on Thursday night and the Connecticut-San Diego State winner Saturday would move Krzyzewski into a tie atop the Division I all-time wins list for men's coaches with Bob Knight, his mentor and coach at Army in the late 1960s.

Also, it would clinch his 12th career Final Four trip, matching the record held by John Wooden.

Krzyzewski calls joining Knight in the record book "something very unique."
