The Blue Devils are coming off their second loss of the season this past weekend when they were defeated by the second-ranked Arizona Wildcats in the finals of the NIT Preseason Tip-Off Tournament.
Following the close loss, Coach K tried to make as much positive out of the situation as he possibly could:
“We played a game worthy of winning,” Krzyzewski said after the Arizona loss. “I thought we played a lot better than we did against Kansas (a 94-83 loss on Nov. 12). I think my team has improved. There is no shame in losing to Kansas or Arizona. Part of us getting better is getting older together.”
A good part of furthering that growing process would be a in over a talented Michigan team who came dangerously close to winning the national title at the end of last season.
