Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski 'not feeling well,' exits at halftime vs. Wake Forest – The Athletic

Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski exited Tuesday night's game against Wake Forest at halftime after being attended to by team trainers several times. Assistant coach Jon Scheyer assumed head-coaching duties at the start of the second half. It was his third time ever in that role.

The Blue Devils would go on to win 76-74 on Mark Williams' putback dunk with 0.2 seconds left.

Duke issued an update at halftime saying that Krzyzewski, 75, was "not feeling well." At one point in the first half, Scheyer called for trainers to bring Krzyzewski water.

"Coach is doing better," Scheyer said after the game. "He needs some rest, but not going to comment more on that. But he's doing much better, he's in a much better place." Scheyer said Krzyzewski was in the building and spoke to the team after the win.

No. 9-ranked Duke is now 22-4 on the season (12-3 in ACC play) and picked up its third straight win. Krzyzewski missed Duke's last matchup against Wake Forest in January with a non-COVID illness.

Over the summer, the longtime coach announced plans to retire at the end of the 2021-22 season, with Scheyer taking over at the helm in the 2022-23 campaign.
