DURHAM, N.C. – Men’s basketball head coach Mike Krzyzewski has always preached involvement in one’s community.
On Wednesday, Coach K took time to attend and speak at North Carolina Central’s 2017 Basketball Tip Off Banquet at the McDougald-McLendon Arena, home of the Eagles.
As a part of fostering the relationships he has established with North Carolina Central’s head coach LeVelle Moton and Chancellor Johnson O. Akinleye, Coach K spoke to an audience rooted in the traditions of Durham.
“I’ve seen Durham grow,” Krzyzewski said. “I think it’s the best city in North Carolina. Wouldn’t it be cool for Durham to have two teams working for a national championship?"
