Duke men's basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski disappointed his last home game resulted in loss
Mike Krzyzewski knew he couldn't script the ending to his storied career, but still this one stung.
In what was supposed to be a celebration of Krzyzewski's 42 years of coaching at Duke.
His final home game ended in a 94-81 loss Saturday to rival North Carolina.
So before the postgame celebration could officially begin, Krzyzewski walked to a microphone at midcourt and offered an impromptu message to the crowd,
some of whom had paid upward of $10,000 on Vivid Seats to attend the farewell at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
"I'm sorry about this afternoon," Krzyzewski said.
The crowd roared, and he asked for quiet.
"Today was unacceptable," he said, "but the season has been very acceptable. And the season isn't over, alright?"
