Duke is about to break UCLA’s record for weeks at #1. Most of those are under Coach K of course.

Duke was #1 in 1979 for a while and probably a few times under Vic Bubas before UCLA got things really cranked up under John Wooden.

It’s an impressive accomplishment and it points to what a historic career Mike Krzyzewski has had.
