DURHAM, N.C. — Duke men's basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski was effusive with his praise on his team's defensive effort Tuesday in defeating Michigan 79-69 in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
Michigan was held to 44.6 percent shooting for the game, but 3 of 13 from three-point land. Krzyzewski said stopping Michigan star sophomore wing Nik Stauskas was the top priority. Stauskas, who is coming off an injury, was held to 0 of 2 from the field and finished with four points in the loss.
