Krzyzewski Brings Duke Hoop Dreams To Life For A Price

Coach K Court -isn't- just for Duke basketball players. Once a year, 80 weekend warriors take to the hardwood floor at Cameron Indoor Stadium and take part in a fantasy camp with coach Mike Krzyzewski's, the court's namesake.

For ten thousand dollars, participants in the annual "K Academy" pull on personalized Blue Devil warm-ups and play for teams coached by J-J Redick, Jay Williams and about 20 other former Duke stars.

One of them is Philadelphia 76ers forward and ex-Duke player Shavlik Randolph. He says the campers "definitely get their money's worth."

The camp gives Coach K a chance to raise money for charitable causes, and he says he -doesn't- make any money from the camp. The
roughly 750-thousand dollars in annual proceeds goes to scholarships at Duke and to the downtown Durham gym and community center that's named for Krzyzewski's late mother.

Coach K says the camp has "helped fund some really good things."
