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.


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]
