Longtime Duke men's basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski spoke about his love for singer Beyonce during a graduate student basketball campout in the Durham campus last week.

In a video that's gone viral this week, Coach K also described feeling starstruck when he asked the "Crazy in Love" and "Single Ladies" singer to take a picture with him at an event honoring NBA all-star LeBron James.

"I come up and I say, 'You're my favorite.' My face is red as can be, I'm like 4 feet tall right now," he said. "And she says, 'Well, that's nice.' And I asked her, and I don't usually do this but I said, 'Would you take a picture with me?' So she takes a picture with me and I look, really, like I'm 12."

Krzyzewski also talked about hanging out with Beyonce's husband, rapper Jay Z, and James as well as his "street cred" during the event.

Here's a video of Coach K's remarks.
