Madison Square Garden: Duke's home on the road

If there’s any arena not named Cameron Indoor Stadium where it’s appropriate for Mike Krzyzewski to claim a milestone win, it’s New York’s Madison Square Garden.

Baumgartner Vaughan: Directions? Just follow your nose

While Los Angeles stands alone in its transportation issues, here in the Triangle we can also go on forever about what’s the best route to get to points A, B, C and back. I never tire of traffic talk. A few years ago I wrote about those late mergers when the Durham Freeway merges onto Interstate 40, and got some of the more salty comments from readers who also do not like those who, ahem, cut in line at the last minute when the rest of us were waiting patiently.

When a game seems out of reach, the lead insurmountable, North Carolina Central women’s coach Vanessa Taylor simplifies things for her team. Instead of using points, she coaches in possessions. And in N.C. Central’s 59-58 win against Coppin State Saturday afternoon, Taylor’s coaching methods did just the trick.

Mike Krzyzewski has 999 wins in his 40-year coaching career. But there's a side of Krzyzewski that goes a long way to explaining why he has a chance to become the first Division I men’s college basketball coach to win 1,000 games when Duke plays St. John’s at Madison Square Garden today (2 p.m., WRAZ).
