‘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.

“He didn’t see himself. We saw him,” Krzyzewski said of Moore. “He was parallel to the ground eight feet up in the air. That was one of the most dangerous plays I’ve ever seen, and I’m not knocking Collins, but I’ve never seen a player

Tom Brady has already played catch with the Lombardi Trophy, tossing it underhand to tight end Cameron Brate during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers boat parade following their Super Bowl title. 

But the great ones are always pushing themselves further, and Brady wants to evolve as well. So his New Year’s resolution this year very specifically involves the Lombardi Trophy.

“I do think what I’d like to do is complete an overhand toss with the Lombardi Trophy,” he told Jim Gray on his weekly Let’s Go podcast (h/t Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times.) “None of this Patrick Mahomes underhand throw that he always does. I’ve got to complete one overhand Lombardi Trophy toss in a boat parade. That would be a great way to get a new year started right.”

As for how he would grip the trophy, Brady kept his tongue planted firmly in

“You tell me?” Dak responded. “I never said we were in a slump. Those were
