Mike Krzyzewski’s Odd Handshake After Duke-NC State
Mike Krzyzewski’s odd handshake after the Duke-NC State game went viral on Thursday morning.
The Blue Devils suffered their most embarrassing defeat of the year on Wednesday night, falling to the Wolfpack 88-66.
It was a lopsided effort from start to finish, and Krzyzewski was not especially happy about it after the fact.
When the time came to shake hands with the coach of the winning side, Kevin Keatts, Krzyzewski was not having any part of it.

Following the outing, Krzyzewski was brutally honest about how his group played.
“It happens,” he said.
“This isn’t an Xbox game. It’s a human being game,” the Duke coach continued.
“Sometimes when you’ve eaten a lot, you’re not as hungry,” he said of his team, which fell to 22-4 on the season and 12-3 in the ACC. “Our team obviously tonight didn’t feel like they needed the win.
“You have to stay hungry while you’re winning at that level because we’re not a team at that level, we’ve just won that many games and tonight we were not competitive.”
With the loss, Duke fell to 22-4 on the season. NC State, conversely, improved to 18-9 on the year.
