Krzyzewski brings Duke hoop dreams to life -- for a price

Story body

DURHAM (AP) -- Coach K Court isn't just for Duke basketball players. Once a year, 80 weekend warriors take to the hardwood floor at Cameron Indoor Stadium and take part in a fantasy camp with coach Mike Krzyzewski's, the court's namesake. For $10,000, participants in the annual "K Academy" pull on personalized Blue Devil warm-ups and play for teams coached by J.J. Redick, Jay Williams and about 20 other former Duke stars. One of them is Philadelphia 76ers forward and ex-Duke player Shavlik Randolph. He says the campers "definitely get their money's worth." The camp gives Coach K a chance to raise money for charitable causes, and he says he doesn't make any money from the camp. The roughly 750-thousand dollars in annual proceeds goes to scholarships at Duke and to the downtown Durham gym and community center that's named for Krzyzewski's late mother. Coach K says the camp has "helped fund some really good things." (Copyright 2007 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
