Final Four 2022: Coach K's career didn't end with a win but did end with a fitting spectacle

NEW ORLEANS -- As Mike Krzyzewski limped off the Superdome court at 10:07 p.m. local time Saturday night, he clasped the left hand of his wife, Mickie, with his right hand.

As they reached the threshold where the exit of the arena floor ends and the tunnel to the locker room begins, Krzyzewski broke stride. He stopped to console freshman guard Trevor Keels, hugging the star Duke freshman as he wept openly. That moment unfolded in front of a Final Four mural painted on the wall that provided the backdrop of both the scene and the night for Duke and Krzyzewski: The Road Ends Here.
