Video: Coach K Prefers Students Burn Benches Rather Than Storm The Court

Interesting, Coach.

Duke men's head basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski is sick and tired of students storming the court in college basketball. After his third-ranked Blue Devils lost to unranked Virginia last night, the UVA Hoo Crew rushed the floor and Coach K had some strong words about it:

"When we've lost in the last 20 years, everybody rushes the court. Whatever you're doing, you need to get the team off first. Celebrate, have fun, obviously you won. That's cool, but just get our team off the court and our coaching staff before students come on." ~ Coach K to the Associated Press

But then Krzyzewski went on to say that he supports celebrating in other ways -- just stay off the court:

Can't wait until somebody wildly lights up a bench in Cameron Indoor sometime -- he's asking for it.
