Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said on Kentucky coach John Caliparis new podcast, Cal Cast, that Sacramento Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins gets a bad rap sometimes.Krzyzewski, who joined Calipari for a 30-plus-minute conversation taped Thursday but released to ESPN in advance of Tuesdays posting on iTunes, Stitcher, SoundCloud and Google Play, said the much-maligned Cousins was one of many former Calipari players whom he enjoyed coaching with Team USA.The three-time gold-medal-winning coach praised Cousins for sticking with Team USA after initially being on the USA Select Team in 2012 following his one season at Kentucky in 2009-10. Cousins was added to the national team in 2014 and won gold medals at that years world championship in Madrid and the Rio de Janeiro Olympics this past summer.For him to come back and still want it, it said a lot about how much he wanted to do it, Krzyzewski told Calipari. He came through for us big time. Hes tough as hell. He is so damn talented. I dont think he has a position. You cant call him a 5 or a 4. Just call him a great player.Cousins has said he wants to play for Team USA in 2020, when San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich will replace Krzyzewski.Krzyzewski told Calipari that the toughest player he has coached against was Argentinas Manu Ginobili of the Spurs. He added that Spains Pau Gasol, now also on the Spurs, was a tough competitor for him during international competition.On his longevity at Duke over the past 37 years, Krzyzewski told Calipari that he doesnt think he could be in a rebuilding position. He said he has been able to work with talented players who are able to play at the highest level of competition.When you recruit good people and are doing what you love, you stay pretty young, said Krzyzewski. Im 69 now, and I feel a lot younger. Ive been fortunate to lead a good life at West Point and at Duke.Krzyzewski said he made a conscious decision 25 years ago to hire former players on his staff only as long as there were enough of them who wanted to be a coach and could coach.The two discussed their childhoods being raised by immigrant parents, their shared Catholic faith and their basketball inspirations. Calipari also admitted that Kentucky fans probably wouldnt want to hear that he is a big fan of former Duke star?Christian Laettner.Calipari told Krzyzewski that he hoped Kentucky and Duke get to play each other at the Final Four in April in Glendale, Arizona.We had a chance in 2010, but we screwed it up, said Calipari of Kentuckys Elite Eight loss to West Virginia. Duke beat West Virginia and then Butler for the title in Indianapolis.In 2015, we screwed that up, Calipari added, referring to Kentucky losing to Wisconsin in the national semifinal before Duke beat the Badgers in Arlington, Texas.Krzyzewski told Calipari it would be an honor to play Kentucky in the Final Four.Calipari also praised Krzyzewski, saying, What youve done for the game is incredible. What youve done for your school is incredible, for the country, for coaches. I love what youve done for your players and your staff.The one topic the two didnt discuss was recruiting and the NBAs one-and-done era, something both Hall of Fame coaches have flourished in.

The Seminoles (4-0) have scored at least 80 points in each of their games.

Jamal Murray Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. BOSTON -- Two teams coming off tough 3-2 road losses Tuesday night get together when the Carolina Hurricanes visit the Boston Bruins on Thursday night.Though both clubs fell, but the Bruins did manage to get a point at Philadelphia, losing a nine-round shootout after rallying for two goals in the third period to force overtime. Boston outshot the Flyers 47-21.The Bruins (21-10-1) are just 5-5-0 at home this season, but the Hurricanes, who are four points from the bottom of the Eastern Conference, are just 3-6-4 on the road.The Hurricanes (9-9-4) held a 2-0 lead in New York but were caught and passed by the Rangers, the second-winningest team in the NHL. Carolina, which felt it was a victim of a bad call late, slipped to 0-8-4 in its past 12 games at Madison Square Garden.For two periods we were by far the better team and didnt allow much of anything aside from the one goal and a couple other chances on the break, said Viktor Stalberg, who scored both Carolina goals Tuesday. He played for the Rangers last season. Other than that, they didnt have any zone time. We were putting pressure on them every single shift. Frustrating ending here.The Bruins, who went 8-6-1 in November, did pick up their first point of the season in nine games trailing after two periods. However, they succumbed in the third-longest shootout in team history (No. 2 was also this season).It was Bostons first game without both Zdeno Chara and John-Michael Liles, two of the teams three best defensemen. Chara, who missed the past four games, is still day-to-day with a lower-body injury, while Liles iss out with a concussion he sustained Sunday.ddddddddddddAsked Tuesday if Chara could return as early as Thursday, Bruins coach Claude Julien said, No idea. He could, (or) maybe not. I really dont know right now. I think hes supposed to skate back home. I dont have that news. So well see how he progresses. We want to have him back as soon as possible. But theres part of it that hes got to be medically cleared, and then the players got to feel that hes ready to go.The Hurricanes, 7-5-2 in November, dropped three of their past four and scored just seven goals in the four games.Weve got to continue to learn as we go, Carolina coach Bill Peters said. Obviously, this (loss to the Rangers) is one that I dont think too many guys will be happy the way it unfolded over 60 minutes. I thought we were in good shape at the beginning of the game, played real well and did a lot of good things. We just needed to continue that and sustain quality play for 60 minutes.Boston goalie Tuukka Rask is an impressive 7-3-3 with a 1.89 goals-against average and a .939 save percentage lifetime against the Hurricanes, while Carolina goaltender Cam Ward is just 14-15-3 with a 2.62 GAA and a .918 save percentage against Boston.Strangely enough, the Hurricanes go right back to New York and Madison Square Garden to face the Rangers on Saturday afternoon before hosting the Tampa Bay Lightning Sunday.The Bruins move on to Buffalo for a Saturday matinee against the Sabres.
