Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski sits on the bench late in the second half of an 82-72 loss to Wake Forest at the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Winston-Salem on March 5, 2014.

Duke University basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski underwent medical tests after getting lightheaded during and after the Blue Devils’ 82-72 loss at Wake Forest University last night.

Krzyzewski, 67, whose 980 wins are the most in the top division of men’s college basketball, was examined on-site after the game and had precautionary tests done at Duke University Hospital after returning to Durham, North Carolina, the school said in a statement.

“His symptoms and condition have improved considerably, and coach Krzyzewski was sent home during the early morning hours on Thursday,” the statement said.

Krzyzewski skipped the post-game news conference, where assistant Steve Wojciechowski said that Krzyzewski had been in good health and that the emotion of the game might have gotten to him, ESPN reported.

Duke (23-7), ranked No. 4 in the Associated Press poll, led 66-59 with 5:20 remaining in the game before Wake Forest (16-14) went on a 17-0 run to take control of the contest.
