The loss hands Krzyzewski yet another loss in a final coaching moment for him. He lost in his last home game as the North Carolina Tar Heels spoiled his farewell game at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Now he’s headed out of the ACC Tournament for the last time with a loss.
The Blue Devils ended up being outmatched in the second half of this game. Virginia Tech apparently was too much for Coach K’s final Duke team and things ended poorly for the Blue Devils because of that.
The Hokies winning was shocking and it sets up some intriguing scenarios as teams try to make the NCAA Tournament. Virginia Tech is clearly in now. It’ll be interesting to see how the rest of the bracket shapes up.
