Krzyzewski: ACC should think big
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski says the new-look Atlantic Coast Conference could be the best basketball league in the country - and should act like it.
The ACC is growing to 15 teams next season when Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Notre Dame join. National champion Louisville comes aboard the following year to replace Big Ten-bound Maryland.
Krzyzewski said Wednesday that ``if you really believe this could be the greatest conference ever, what are all the things that the greatest conference ever would do?''
Speaking during his annual ``K Academy'' fantasy camp at Duke, he said the league needs to ``look at the total package of what we have'' and ``think outside conventional ways'' in everything from its preseason media day to its league schedule and postseason tournament.
