Coach K, Knight reflect as Duke coach nears career victory No. 903

Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski could make history tonight in New York City.

The man also known as “Coach K” would become the NCAA’s all-time winningest men’s basketball coach if his Blue Devils can best Michigan State in the first game at the State Farm Champions Classic (ESPN, 7 p.m. ET). If he records win No. 903, he’ll pass his mentor and former collegiate coach Bob Knight, who will be in Madison Square Garden calling the game for ESPN.

At halftime of Monday Night Football on Nov. 14, Krzyzewski and Knight reflected on the Duke coach’s career with ESPN’s Chris Berman. Check out the video above.

The Duke-Michigan State game is one of 21 contests in ESPN’s fourth annual College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon.

In addition, the ESPN family of networks is also currently airing “Coach K’s record Climb,” an hour-long documentary on the Coach with insight from his former players, coaches and more. A clip of the documentary can be found below. (Check local listings for air times.)

Lastly, should Coach K reach the historic milestone this evening, ESPN Classic will kickoff a day long tribute to him, starting with a midnight replay of Tuesday’s record-clinching win. Other programming is listed below.
