" Obviously, I’m proud of our team to get that win. It was really unusual circumstances. First and foremost, we were concerned about Coach [Mike Krzyzewski] and his health. Coach is doing better. He got some rest, and he needs some rest, but I’m not going to comment anymore on that. I’m not sure what else, but he is doing better. He’s in a much better place, I think especially the fact that we got that win."
Jon Scheyer also stated the following in the post game press conference after learning that he would coach the 2nd half in place of Coach K....
" Our team, we’ve had some pretty unique situations this year already with guys being out and what happened earlier at Wake Forest. We went back at half time and clearly Coach wasn’t himself. He wasn’t right. We just told the team he needs to focus on taking care of him and we need to step up and come out in the second half and do what we need to do. It really became all about our game plan and what we had to do. Our guys were focused, that doesn’t mean there weren’t things that we could’ve done better, but they were locked in and just focused on getting that win for Coach and for our team. It was an important game for us. ”
" I want to congratulate Duke on one heck of a win. They have a really good team. They battled hard and I thought Mark Williams was a monster tonight. He was hard to deal to deal with and scored and he rebounded. They found a way to win. That’s the mark of a really good basketball team. I hope Coach K is feeling better. "
