Duke hoops event

April 11, 2007

Vicki's class this semester includes two members of Duke's men's basketball team, who invited us to attend their

season-ending banquet tonight. The highlight for me was hearing Coach Mike Krzyzewski. He began his comments by thanking the Duke professors who teach his players, and gesturing to where all of us were sitting. I thought that was pretty classy. He also emphasized that he judged the success of each season by how well the team achieved goals like integrity, sportsmanship, and education. Those kinds of goals, he said, lead to success on the court. You don't start on the court and work toward the other goals. He convinced me, as he has in his writing, that he walks his talk.
