With actual basketball games in only a few weeks, college teams have started to recently assemble for their media days. On Monday (Oct. 15), Duke basketball went through the process, and Mike Krzyzewski addressed the media collective, too.
However, one can’t have a discussion about college hoops these days without addressing the elephant in the room: the federal investigation into corruption in the sport. According to Coach K, he hasn’t followed the trial, which is currently taking place, all that much. The reason for that: Krzyzewski doesn’t see it as a major part of the game.
