ESPN's ACC Network is only one day away from its long-anticipated debut. As one of its first offerings, the ACC Network will have a very special documentary about Duke's Coach K.

According to The Devils Den, a 90-minute documentary entitled The Class That Saved Coach K will be broadcast. It will be second-ever show on the network, following the first episode of All ACC.

Per the report, the documentary delves into Duke's famed 1982 recruiting class and how it shaped Coach K's tenure. Among the interviewees are Coach K, Mark Alarie, Jay Bilas, Johnny Dawkins and David Henderson.

In addition to the documentary, a behind-the-scenes program entitled An Evening With The Class That Saved Coach K will take place at the conclusion of the show.

All four of those players were key members of Duke's 1986 NCAA Tournament team, which set the stage of Duke's future dominance in college basketball.

The 1986 team became the first Duke team in 20 years to win the ACC regular season and tournament titles.

Though they ultimately lost the NCAA Tournament Final to Louisville, the stage was set for Duke's dominance.

The Class That Saved Coach K will debut on the ACC Network at 9 p.m. EST on Thursday.
