FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) - Mike Krzyzewski gave his Duke team a taste of his Army past.
The former West Point cadet, player and coach had the Blue Devils at Fort Bragg for a day of physical training and an open practice.
Speaking before Monday's practice, Krzyzewski called it an honor for his players to ``be around the best team in the world,'' referring to the military.
For the Blue Devils themselves, practice might have been the easiest part of the day.
The players spent Sunday night in the barracks, woke up at 5:45 a.m. to march to physical training, and completed an obstacle course before arriving at the physical fitness center where they practiced. Virtually every player arrived at the gym caked in dirt from the obstacle course.
