Coach K College Basketball was the first college basketball video game developed by EA Sports spun off from their NBA Live engine. Coach K College Basketball was released in 1995 for Sega Genesis.[2] Endorsed by Duke head basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski, the game features 32 officially licensed teams in addition to eight classic teams.

Reception[edit]

GamePro commented in their review that "With seven trips to the tournament semifinals under his belt, Krzyzweski knows his stuff, and so does EA Sports - this game takes Dick Vitale's College Hoops to the hole", citing the numerous options, customizable rules, realistic-styled sprites, and strong voice effects.[3] The two sports reviewers of Electronic Gaming Monthly gave it scores of 8 out of 10 and 7 out of 10, praising the wide selection of teams, the multiplayer mode, and the use of plays and animations from the NBA Live engine.[4]
