A player at Duke from 1982-86 and later an assistant coach under Mike Krzyzewski, the current ESPN analyst remembers trying to defend Len Bias during the Maryland star's 41-point game in Durham in 1986:
"We would come back to huddles and kind of [say], 'What are we going to do? We can't stop him.' It wasn't like he was being guarded by poor defenders. Mark Alarie was guarding him. He held Danny Manning to two points in the Final Four. He could guard. And we had a good defensive team and we couldn't lay a glove on him. The only thing that kept us playing is that we were beating them. We didn't beat him. We beat them."
