GREENSBORO, N.C. — Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski moved past longtime rival Dean Smith into second place on the men’s all-time wins list Wednesday night when the No. 1 Blue Devils routed North Carolina-Greensboro 108-62.

Krzyzewski posted his 880th career victory. Coach K trails only Bob Knight, who mentored Krzyzewski and coached him at Army on the way to 902 wins. One fan in the stands held a sign that said: “You’re next, Bobby.”

When the buzzer sounded, Krzyzewski hugged UNC Greensboro coach — and former assistant — Mike Dement before making his way across the court for a television interview. The Hall of Fame coach waved to the Duke fans who helped pack the 23,000-seat Greensboro Coliseum.

    A small eyewitness note: There were more fans in the old barn for the Duke Blue Devils tonight than for the Tar Heels earlier this month. Ed Hardin and I told you Greensboro is now a Duke town.

    …and to add insult to injury, UNC played on the weekend vs a nationally recognized program in the Univ of Texas.
