999 & COUNTING: Coach K to chase win No. 1,000 Sunday

With milestones and records in the offing, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski is maintaining the attitude that made him Division I men’s college basketball’s all-time wins leader.

Duke’s 79-65 win over Pittsburgh Monday night at Cameron Indoor Stadium left Krzyzewski with 999 career wins.

“It means we’re 16-2,” said Krzyzewski, who started this season with 983 career wins. “That’s what it means. We hope to be 17-2 in the next game we play. That’s the way we approach everything and we’ll continue to approach it that way.”

He’ll take his first crack at win No. 1,000, and a 17-2 record this season, when the Blue Devils play St. John’s at Madison Square Garden in New York on Sunday (2 p.m., WRAZ).

When Duke takes the court again in ACC play at Notre Dame on Jan. 28 (7:30 p.m., ESPN2), Krzyzewski has a chance to claim another coaching record.

The win over Pittsburgh was Krzyzewski’s 421st against ACC competition, leaving him one win shy of all-time leader Dean Smith. The former UNC coach had 422 ACC wins in his career from 1961-97.
