Coach K's Daughter Recovering After Mild Stroke

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- The oldest daughter of Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski is expected to make a full recovery after suffering a mild stroke several weeks ago.

The school said in a statement Monday night that Debbie Krzyzewski Savarino is back at work as the assistant director of Duke's Legacy Fund and director of external relations for the Blue Devils' basketball office.

According to the statement, Savarino is recovering from a vertebral artery dissection that resulted in a mild stroke. School spokesman Jon Jackson says Savarino's recovery is progressing "extremely well."
