Mike Krzyzewski Reportedly Banned Players from Locker Room Due to Struggles


29 January, 2017

Krzyzewski technically is on a leave of absence after having back surgery, but that didn't stop him from telling the players during a meeting Tuesday at his house that they were banned from the locker room and wearing Duke apparel, ESPN reported Thursday, citing sources.

Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski has temporarily banned his team from the locker room after losing three of its last four games, according to a report from ESPN.

The loss to NC State, in which Duke blew a late lead, happened to be their first loss at home to the Wolfpack since 1995.

Duke is just 2-3 with Jeff Capel serving as interim coach since Krzyzewski coached the team on January 4. The Blue Devils were struggling in the same ways they had on Monday in a loss to NC State, and they trailed the Demon Deacons 42-32 at halftime.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) Luke Kennard hit a 3-pointer with 6.6 seconds left and No. 17 Duke rallied to beat Wake Forest 85-83 on Saturday. Earlier this season, Allen was suspended for what turned out to be one game, for tripping an opponent.

There's still a few months to wait until Google reveals all, so we'll no doubt be hearing rumours and leaks in the run up to May. Developers then started following these riddles that ultimately revealed the location and the dates of the Google I/O 2017.

Mike Krzyzewski isn't a happy man, and made a decision to take out some of his frustrations on Duke players. The Blue Devils are 15-5 and a lackluster 3-4 in the ACC.

Pundits believe that although Allen and Jackson are very good players, neither one of them are true point guards and the lack of a real playmaker in the team his visibly hurting Duke at the moment.

Wake Forest called timeout and inbounded the ball to Crawford, who took off down the right sideline and put up a runner that missed. It was the third time he'd tripped an opposing player in the past year.

The most unlikely victory of Duke's season materialized Saturday afternoon.
