The 8-seed North Carolina Tar Heels beat the 2-seed Duke Blue Devils 81-77 in the NCAA Tournament’s Final Four on Saturday night. A Final Four game featuring college basketball’s rivalry was sure to be intriguing regardless, but it really was an absolutely incredible game that featured 18 lead changes. North Carolina advances to the National Championship, where they’ll face Kansas on Monday night.

And with the Duke loss, it became the final game of Mike Krzyzewski’s amazing career.

Krzyzewski spoke to TBS reporter Tracy Wolfson after the game.

And here’s Krzyzewski’s final press conference:

Coach K has been the Duke head coach since 1980, and he led the Blue Devils to five national titles and 13 Final Fours. He also served as head coach for three gold medal-winning USA men’s basketball teams in the Olympics.

Duke assistant coach and former Blue Devils guard Jon Scheyer will take over as head coach.

The reaction to Coach K’s career-ending game has featured a lot of tributes, and also has featured some mocking. Here’s a sampling of how it looks on Twitter:
