Mike Krzyzewski was going to retire whenever the Duke Blue Devils’ season ended. As it turns out, the team made it to the Final Four as the second-seed. Awaiting them in New Orleans was the rival UNC Tar Heels. If there was one thing that Duke fans could not stomach, it was Coach K’s career ending by the Tar Heels.
On Saturday, Duke lost 81-77 to North Carolina to get eliminated in the NCAA Tournament. Not only that, but the Blue Devils’ opportunity to give Coach K his sixth national title will not become a reality.
