Coach K, Williams and Lowe pumped to watch figure skating

It’s not often I get college basketball news from a figure skating blog (or ever), but Matt Stroup from Universal Sports worked up a gem where Mike Krzyzewski, Roy Williams and Sidney Lowe all did promos for the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

Who knew figure skating was a big deal in “The Triangle”?

Hmm. One of those three was a little less emphatic than the other two. Let’s have Stroup judge just how serious each coach sounds.

the only one that sounds like a definite maybe is Coach K, who is apparently only willing to commit to the fact that he really should buy those tickets ASAP (which is akin to saying “I really need to do the laundry today,” which of course implies that the laundry is pretty likely to not get done).

But based on Coach Roy’s response, we’re definitely expecting to see him there, and given that Lowe responded in the affirmative not once, but twice, we are one hundred percent certain that he’s going to be in attendance.

Williams, Lowe and Krzyzewski better hurry, though. The Greensboro, N.C., event started Saturday and runs through next Sunday. Doesn’t leave much time to prep for Miami, Clemson or Boston College.
