Five Point Play: Duke's Journey to the 2001 National Championship

It was April 2, 2001, and the Duke Blue Devils were squaring off against the Arizona Wildcats in the NCAA National Basketball Championship game. The Devils went on to win that game 82-72, earning coach Mike Krzyzewski his third Division I championship and bringing his lifetime record to 533 wins versus 164 losses--the best record of any college coach in the past two decades. A new book, Five Point Play: Duke's Journey to the 2001 National Championship, chronicles Duke's magical season from the perspective of the six-time National Coach of the Year, taking the team from training camp through the national championships. Krzyzewski will be signing copies of his book at Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh on Dec. 21 at 6 p.m. and at the Barnes & Noble in Cary on Saturday, Dec. 22 from 2-3 p.m. Call Quail Ridge Books at 828-1588 and Barnes & Noble at 467-3866 for details.
