Duke didn't shoot the ball well nor did it have one of its big runs against Florida State.
Rather, the 18th-ranked Blue Devils gave their Hall of Fame coach a milestone win by aggressively crashing the glass, converting on turnovers and cashing in at the free-throw line.
Rodney Hood scored 18 points to help Duke beat Florida State 78-56 on Saturday, giving Mike Krzyzewski his 900th victory in his 34th season at the school.
Jabari Parker added 14 points for the Blue Devils (16-4, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who shot 31 percent but nearly doubled the Seminoles on the glass while scoring 29 points off both turnovers and offensive rebounds.
Never miss a local story.
Krzyzewski is the all-time leader in career victories in men's Division I with 973. He joins Syracuse's Jim Boeheim as the only coaches with at least 900 wins at one program.
"That's a lot of wins," Krzyzewski said. "I thank Duke for keeping me. I've been blessed with being at one of the greatest schools in the world."

Gophers go without Hollins

Hollins won't play Sunday at Nebraska, and Pitino said the team was also assuming he will miss at least the game next Saturday.
