Mike Krzyzewski earns 1,000th win as Duke coach

With a win over Utah Valley, Mike Krzyzewski became the first DI coach to earn 1,000 wins at one school.

DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke's Mike Krzyzewski became the first men's Division I coach to win 1,000 games at one school Saturday night when his top-ranked Blue Devils beat Utah Valley 99-69 behind 24 points and 10 rebounds from freshman Marvin Bagley III.

Grayson Allen added 18 points for Duke (2-0) while three other freshmen also had big nights: Trevon Duvalhad 15 points and 12 assists, Gary Trent Jr. added 17 points and Wendell Carter Jr. had 12.

Utah Valley, which pestered No. 5 Kentucky a night earlier, gave Duke about 10 minutes' worth of trouble before the Blue Devils pulled away on the strength of arguably the nation's best freshman class.

Each of Duke's first 40 points was scored by a freshman, including every single one during the 27-8 run midway through the first half that gave the Blue Devils a comfortable lead and put Krzyzewski well on his way to the latest milestone of his Hall of Fame career.

Krzyzewski, who in 2015 became the first men's coach at college basketball's top level to reach the 1,000-win mark, improved to 1,073-330 during a 43-year career that also included a half-decade at his alma mater, Army. In 38 seasons at Duke, he is 1,000-271.

Akolda Manyang had 17 points and 12 rebounds to lead Utah Valley (0-2).
