Coach K faints after apparent dizzy spell


February 5, 2005


DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski collapsed during a timeout in the first half of Saturday's game against No. 25 Georgia Tech, spending about a minute on the floor before returning to the huddle.


He kept coaching for the remainder of the game, showing no ill effects from the fall. School spokesman Jon Jackson called it a dizzy spell but wasn't officially told of the exact cause by team doctors.


During the stoppage 8 1/2 minutes into the game, Coach K was talking to one of the referees and suddenly fell to the floor. He lay on his right side, facing his bench, while his assistant coaches and the Duke training staff briefly attended to him.


Krzyzewski's wife, Mickie, ran from her seat in the upper deck to the end of the bench, and Duke athletic director Joe Alleva came, too. But the 57-year-old coach was up and back in front of his players to complete the timeout.


When referee Reginald Cofer went to check on him, Krzyzewski took the opportunity to complain about the officiating, and Cofer walked away smiling.
