Duke Tops UConn In All-Time Coaching Matchup

NEW YORK (AP) -- The winningest matchup of Division I coaches was definitely one-sided.

Seventh-ranked Duke and Mike Krzyzewski won another NIT Season Tip-Off on Friday with a 68-59 victory over No. 13 Connecticut and Jim Calhoun.

The Hall of Fame coaches set the record for total career wins in a game and Krzyzewski now has 839, fourth on the all-time list, and Calhoun still has 809, good for sixth place.

The Blue Devils (6-0) dominated the Huskies (4-1) in every category in extending its winning streak in the tournament to 12 games with their third straight title (2000, 2005) and fourth overall (1985).

The win also snapped Connecticut's four-game winning streak in the series with the last two victories both coming in Final Fours -- the 1999 national championship game and the 2004 semifinals.
