Coach K Getting Crushed For What He Said To An Oregon Player After Duke's Loss

Coach K talks with Dillon Brooks after the game.

Coach K

Coach K used the postgame handshake line Thursday night as an opportunity to give a lecture. 

Following Duke's loss to Oregon in the NCAA Tournament's Sweet 16, Krzyzewski told Ducks' star guard Dillon Brooks he's "too good a player" to be "showing off" like he did in the final minutes of the game. 

Brooks made a 3 as the shot clock was about to expire and did a bit of a celebration.

Coach K then talked to him in the handshake line.

Many are now upset with what Coach K did.

">@SIPeteThamel ok, so take a shot clock violation or fire up a shot closer to half court line then 3-pt line. He didn't sprint to rim & dunk.

">@SIPeteThamel Brooks handled it well. Don't think opposing coach should ever "correct" opposing player tho. Complimenting is fine.

Krzyzewski's lecture does seem pretty hypocritical when you remember he skipped out on the end of the hand shake line after a loss to Syracuse. 

Oregon will face Oklahoma in the Elite Eight on Saturday.
