VIDEO: Mike Krzyzewski’s touching tribute to Jim Valvano

The Jimmy V Classic, which Duke is participating in this season, is an event created to raise money for cancer research in honor of Jim Valvano, the legendary N.C. State head coach that passed away from the disease in 1993.

Mike Krzyzewski and Jimmy V were close - after his famous ‘Don’t give up’ speech, Coach K is one of the men helping Jimmy V off of the stage - and he spoke with Dear World about his memories of Valvano.
