08:20 AM ET 02.20 | Mike Krzyzewski appears to be going a little easier on his Blue Devils these days. Over the past two or three weeks, [Krzyzewski] has softened his public critiques of his team. Before Miami defeated Duke on Feb. 5, the Blue Devils' coach wouldn't shy away from pointing out his team's warts. ... Recently, however, Krzyzewski has taken a different tack. He has stressed the Blue Devils' accomplishments whenever he can. Fifth-ranked Duke [entered Sunday's game at Boston College] battling with North Carolina and Florida State for the ACC's regular championship. In the ACC's weekly teleconference last Monday, Krzyzewski was most effusive, saying, "Really, overall, I think these kids have done an unbelievable job."
