DURHAM, N.C. — Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski missed Saturday's game against Wake Forest because of a virus.

Team officials made the announcement about the 70-year-old Hall of Fame coach about 40 minutes before tipoff.

Associate head coach Jeff Capel is again running the team in his absence. Capel led the team for four weeks midway through last season after the winningest men's coach in Division I had back surgery.

The coaching staff again left empty Krzyzewski's customary seat — the third seat from the scorer's table.

The seventh-ranked Blue Devils (14-2, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) are coming off an 87-52 rout at Pittsburgh and face a quick turnaround with a road game Monday night at No. 18 Miami.

Krzyzewski is 1,085-332 in his 43rd season as a college head coach, with 1,012 of those victories coming during his 38 seasons at Duke.

This marks the third straight season in which Krzyzewski — who turns 71 on Feb. 13 — has missed at least one game because of his health.

The Blue Devils went 4-3 last season while Coach K stepped away to have a fragment of a herniated disk removed last January. One of the victories during that span came against Wake Forest.
