Say what you want about the Duke Blue Devils and head coach Mike Krzyzewski, but what Coach K did after losing to the Mercer Bears was classy.
After the 78-71 loss to No. 14 Mercer, Coach K went into the Bears' locker room to congratulate the team on the win. According to Nicole Auerbach from USA Today, Krzyzewski told the Bears, "If we got beaten, at least we got beaten by a hell of a basketball team."
