Coach K Wants No Part of Post-Game Handshakes after Losing to Syracuse (Video)
Both Duke and Syracuse have been faced with uncharacteristically mediocre seasons this year, so in last night’s game, something had to give. Unfortunately for Coach K and the Blue Devil faithful, Duke was what gave, dropping their third game in a row.
Rather than take the high road, Coach K, who clearly isn’t used to such a slide, took his frustrations out in the handshake line after the game, going through a few players before just saying “screw it,” and walking away with his hand sort of still out.
Coach K also felt robbed by the officials on what he referred to in his postgame conference as an “amazing” play, which almost certainly led to bitterness immediately after the game.
