"I hate to see Maryland leave," Krzyzewski said Monday. "When [the ACC] started, you had some guys shaking hands and saying, 'We're going to start something special.' Duke, Maryland and a few others were in that room. I hate something that happened 60 years ago, in a few weeks [in November], it's no more. I respect the heck out of Maryland, especially basketball. Terrific coaches like Lefty [Driesell] and Gary [Williams], great players, great games, amazing atmosphere. I'm sorry that it's not going to be there for our conference and for Duke and Maryland anymore."
