Steve Wojciechowski

Steve Wojciechowski is one win away, and Chris Collins is four ... from facing their alma mater. Wojo and Collins were Duke teammates from 1994-96 and played in one NCAA tournament. They later served as Duke assistants for more than a decade and helped the Blue Devils win two national championships.

This year will be their first NCAA tournament as head coaches -- Wojo with Marquette and Collins with Northwestern. They are among 22 coaches in the 2017 tournament who also competed as players. Three have the added distinction of coaching their alma maters: Matt Painter (Purdue), Chris Mack (Xavier) and Mitch Henderson (Princeton). The following list includes two national champions, two brothers and a guy who hit a buzzer-beater in one of the tournament's most iconic Cinderella moments.

Wojciechowski's 1994-95 freshman season is remembered for Mike Krzyzewski missing most of the year tending to a back injury. It is the only season since 1982-83 that Duke did did not reach the NCAA tournament. Woj then lost in the first round as a sophomore and the second as a junior. As a senior, after winning the NABC Defensive Player of the Year, Wojciechowski was part of an Elite Eight team that lost to eventual champion Kentucky (as Jamaal Magloire nearly broke Wojo in half).
