Coach K Wins No. 901; No. 6 Duke Tops Bruins 77-76

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Seth Curry scored 16 points and No. 6 Duke held off Belmont 77-76 on Friday night in the first round of the EA Sports Maui Invitational to move coach Mike Krzyzewski within one victory of tying Bob Knight atop the Division I men's career list.

Austin Rivers added 16 points in his college debut for the Blue Devils (1-0). They shot 43 percent and overcame 19 turnovers to avoid their first nonconference home loss since 2000 and put their Hall of Fame coach one step closer to history.

Krzyzewski started his 37th season as a head coach by improving his record to 901-284. He can tie his college coach and mentor's record Saturday when Duke plays host to Presbyterian.

Kerron Johnson scored 15 points for Belmont (0-1), which shot 47 percent and fell to 0-3 against ACC opponents.
