Duke Looking Into Possible Secondary Violation Involving Krzyzewski

Duke’s compliance office is seeking clarification from the NCAA concerning a possible secondary violation by basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski.

The school wants an interpretation of an NCAA rule to find out if it is permissible for a recruit to speak with a coach by phone if he is not playing in a tournament but is still on the road, ESPN.com’s Andy Katz reports.

Alex Poythress, a 6-7 forward from Clarksville, Tenn., in the class of 2012, called Krzyzewski on Tuesday night after his Georgia Stars team was eliminated from the AAU Super Showcase in Orlando, Fla., Katz reports, citing a source.

According to Katz, Poythress was scheduled to play with the Stars in the AAU nationals which started Wednesday. Duke is checking whether a violation was committed, even though Poythress wasn’t technically playing in a tournament when he spoke to Krzyzewski.

Krzyzewski was in Orlando on Monday and Tuesday, according to Katz.
