‘One of the most dangerous plays I’ve ever seen:’ Duke’s Coach K reacts to flagrant foul during win vs. Clemson

CLEMSON, S.C. — Mike Krzyzewski didn’t enter Thursday’s postgame press conference upset but relieved that one of his players left the Littlejohn Coliseum without a serious injury.

Clemson senior guard David Collins undercut Duke’s Wendell Moore on a fast-break dunk with 3:01 left in the first half, sending the junior forward flying dangerously through the air while luckily avoiding a head-to-floor collision.

Moore, who crashed to the ground awkwardly on his right hip and side, quickly sprang to his feet while officials called an intentional foul on Collins. An irate Coach K, 74, raced from the bench to the opponent’s baseline to check on Moore.

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson on Sunday against Baltimore.

Baltimore Ravens starting quarterback Lamar Jackson is set to get paid this offseason.

“Deserves every penny. Tired of people ignoring the numbers and acting like he’s not gonna pan out long term. We all know why they’re saying

“Using a sports cliché – I’ve put it all out on the field,” he said. “I have plenty more to give, and I’m a young guy in good health, but there’s a lot more in my life that I’m looking to do right now, and I just want to enjoy the freedom that retirement offers.”

Schwarz has been with ESPN for 32 years. He’s the longest-tenured reporter to appear on SportsCenter.
