Duke Wins The ACC Championship, And Mike Krzyzewski Is Happy

Duke basketball has won its fair share of ACC Tournament titles, but apparently it still means something to coach Mike Krzyzewski. The Blue Devils' coach looked pretty overjoyed to win this year, as his Blue Devils had an easy time with North Carolina.

Maybe it has to do with beating his hated rival. Maybe it's because the win probably clinched a No. 1 seed for his team. Maybe it's because he's playing for the cameras. Who knows? But no matter what, it looks like Coach K is happy.

And you know what? I'm a resident Duke hater, but I can't hate here. I'm as cynical about the severity of Nolan Smith's injury as anyone, but Duke completely dominated this tournament. North Carolina may be a good team, but it didn't look like it in this one. I've rarely seen Duke gun for an ACC title more blatantly than this, so it's only fitting they ended up winning it. Congrats, guys.

Now, I will root for you to lose early in the NCAA Tournament. That is my right.
