DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Mike Krzyzewski tied Bob Knight atop the Division I men's career wins list with his 902nd victory in No. 6 Duke's 96-55 rout against Presbyterian on Saturday.

Ryan Kelly scored 17 points for the Blue Devils (2-0). They shot 61 percent and used a huge first-half run to put the game out of reach and deliver another milestone victory to their Hall of Fame coach.

Coach K improved to 902-284 during his 37th season as a college coach at Army and Duke. He can pass Knight — his coach and mentor — on Tuesday night against Michigan State at Madison Square Garden.

Al'Lonzo Coleman had 11 points for Presbyterian (1-1).
