INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -

When it comes to college basketball, coaching chess matches don't get much better than Mike Krzyzewski vs. Tom Izzo.

2 of the nation's most successful coaches are squaring off in Friday night's Midwest Regional semifinals.

Krzyzewski has an NCAA record 956 career wins and four national championships at Duke, winning two titles in Indianapolis. Tom Izzo has a school-record 493 wins and one national title at Michigan State. He won his title in Indy, where Friday's game will be played.

And few have been better in the postseason. Both coaches have winning percentages of .736 or better in the NCAA tourney. Krzyzewski's 11 Final Four appearances are the most of any active coach. Izzo is tied for third with six.
