DURHAM, N.C., Nov. 12 (UPI) -- Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski tied an NCAA Division I men's basketball record Saturday with the sixth-ranked Blue Devils' 96-55 win over Presbyterian.

The victory gave him 902 for his career, tying him with his mentor, Bob Knight, for the most in the sport's history.

Knight coached Krzyzewski when the latter was a player with Army.

Austin Rivers scored 15 points and handed off six assists while brothers Miles and Mason Plumlee both added 13 points for Duke (2-0), which shot 61.4 percent and extended its NCAA-best home winning streak to 38 games.

The Blue Hose (1-1) managed just 32.1 percent shooting from the field.
