Milestone alert! Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski can become just the second D-I men’s coach to reach 900 career wins if his Blue Devils beat Michigan on Sunday.

He’d join his former coach, Bob Knight.

And while we’re on the milestone topic, a win would place Duke (31-4) into the Sweet 16 for the 20th time in 26 years and be his 79th NCAA tournament win. Coach K’s 899-283 in 36 years at Duke and Army.

BONUS MILESTONE WATCH! A spot in the Final Four would tie Coach K with Knight for the most wins all time. Three more wins and he’s be all alone atop the list.

Not enough to pique your interest in Sunday’s game? There’s the random spat going on between members of Michigan’s Fab Five and Duke’s players from their 1992 title team.

That’ll be mentioned, oh, once or seven times on Sunday. As if there wasn’t enough drama with a Sweet 16 berth on the line …
