The Blue Devils were led by Kyle Singler with 27 points and Nolan Smith with 26 in giving the Hall of Fame coach his 880th career victory, before a crowd of 23,000 at Greensboro Coliseum.

Coach “K” moved past longtime North Carolina coach Dean Smith. That leaves Bobby Knight next on the list. Knight was his mentor and coached him at Army.

Coach “K” is in his 36th year as a head coach and has an overall record of 880-279. He could catch Knight by the end of the season.

The Blue Devils won their fourth NCAA Title in Indianapolis on April 5 by beating the fan favorite Bulldogs 61-59. as Gordon Hayward’s potential game-winning 3-point shot from halfcourt bounced off the rim.

The Blue Devils have a long, successful history at the arena, going 18-1 and winning five NCAA regional finals there. Butler has never played at the Meadowlands, former home of the New Jersey Nets of the NBA.

Both teams will start the season amongst the favorites to return to the national championship game. The Blue Devils return star players Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith.

Gordon Hayward declared early for the NBA draft but has not signed with a agent and could region Shelvin Mack, Matt Howard and Ronald Nored in the Butler Bulldogs lineup.
