Video: Mike Krzyzewski gives touching tribute to Jim Valvano


The 2016 Jimmy V Classic — which raises money for cancer research in honor of legendary basketball coach Jim Valvano — takes place at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Tuesday night.

The Duke Blue Devils are one of four teams that will participate in the day’s double-header, which is only fitting considering Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski and Jimmy V were very close friends. In fact, Coach K was present for the iconic “Don’t Give Up” speech and helped Valvano off the stage.

In anticipation of the latest installment of the Jimmy V Classic, Coach K recorded an emotional, heartfelt tribute to his late friend.

You can watch the tribute video below:

Purdue and Arizona State kickoff the action tonight at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN, before Coach K’s Duke Blue Devils take on Florida at 9 p.m. ET.
