Dukes nine straight sweet 16 appearance!

Okay so everyone knows John Wooden had seven straight NCAA titles (10 total) at UCLA might be the hardest college basketball record to break. Which in and of itself is just flat out incredible, and yet still not even close to any other coach or team beating this record.

Though, we need to give our props out to Mike Krzyzewski aka Coach K having nine straight Sweet 16 appearances at Duke ends up being just as difficult to approach.

"What Mike has done is certainly in the same category as what John Wooden did," Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said. "It's an awfully, awfully impressive thing in today's world."

"What's amazing to me is that they didn't have one bad second-round game," said Pitt's Jamie Dixon.
