CBS Releases Audio That Reveals What Coach K Said To Oregon's Dillon Brooks

Update: 3:40 p.m. ET, March 25

Coach K has apologized for his comments. 

"Today, I spoke with Oregon head coach Dana Altman and apologized to him for my remarks to Dillon Brooks following our game," Krzyzewski said in a statement. "It is not my place to talk to another team's player and doing so took the focus away from the terrific game that Dillon played. “In the postgame press conference, I reacted incorrectly to a reporter's question about my comment to Dillon. Clearly, the story that night was about Oregon advancing to the Elite Eight, and the outstanding game they played. I sincerely hope I did not create a distraction for Coach Altman and his team at this critical time of year. Certainly, I have the utmost respect for the Oregon program and their tremendous accomplishments."

Originial story:

Near the end of the Oregon Ducks' 82-68 win over the Duke Blue Devils, Oregon's Dillon Brooks hit a nearly 30-foot 3-pointer at the end of the shot clock. The shot, which came on head coach Dana Altman's orders, resulted in Duke head coach speaking with Brooks about the shot. 

Brooks said that Coach K told him he was a too good of a player to take that shot. But Coach K denied making those comments. The audio of that conversation, which is embedded below, shows exactly what was said. 

Here's the transcribed version of that conversation. For more March Madness coverage, download the Chat Sports app!

Coach K: "You’re too good of a player to do that."
Brooks: "I’m sorry, I’m sorry."
Coach K: "Too good of a player." 
Brooks: "My bad."

Oregon and Brooks have moved on from Coach K's lecture and are on to the Elite Eight. But Coach K was still not quite honest in his post-game comments.
