Congrats to Mike Buckmire who was given a scholarship Monday by Coach K.

Krzyzewski had this to say: “This is a great moment for Mike and his family. He has put in the work both athletically and academically, and shows up every day to help make our team better. Mike perfectly embodies what it means to be a member of our program -- most notably his commitment of selfless service to his teammates. I am so proud to have Mike in our program and he is absolutely deserving of a scholarship.”

That’s really great to hear. He’s been a pleasure to watch even though he doesn’t play much. He’s a great addition to this team.
