NEW YORK (AP) — Mike Krzyzewski became Division I's all-time winningest coach when No. 6 Duke beat Michigan State 74-69 on Tuesday night in the State Farm Champions Classic.

The Blue Devils (3-0) gave Coach K his 903rd win, breaking the tie with Bob Knight, Krzyzewski's college coach at Army and his mentor throughout his professional career.

Junior guard Andre Dawkins had 26 points for Duke, which took control with a 20-1 run that gave the Blue Devils a 61-41 lead with 9:17 to play and then it was just a matter of counting down the minutes until the celebration could get under way..
