Duke v Michigan State
NEW YORK - NOVEMBER 15: Head coach Mike Krzyzewski (L) of the Duke Blue Devils embraces head coach (R) Tom Izzo of the Michigan State Spartans after winning his 903 NCAA Division 1 basketball game and becoming the winningest coach in history taking the record from Bobby Knight after defeating the Michigan State Spartans during the 2011 State Farms Champions Classic at Madison Square Garden on November 15, 2011 in New York City.

This is a pretty cool piece about the relationship between Coach K and Tom Izzo. They are fierce competitors on the court - the recent Izzo explosion which got so much criticism wasn't that much more intense than some K has had, although he is better at restraining himself and has never needed anyone else to do it - but great friends off it.

We have a ton of respect for Izzo and have often said he’s our second favorite coach. He’s not just a great coach but he comes across as a nice, normal man.
