    DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Former Duke coach Vic Bubas, who led the Blue Devils to three Final Fours in 10 seasons, has died.

    School spokesman Jon Jackson says family members told him Bubas died Monday at age 91. No cause of death was given.

    Current coach Mike Krzyzewski says Duke "lost a true legend."

    Bubas went 213-67 with the Blue Devils from 1959-69 and won the first of his four Atlantic Coast Conference titles in his first season. He led Duke to Final Fours in 1963, 1964 and 1966.

    He played on North Carolina State's Final Four team in 1950 and served as commissioner of the Sun Belt Conference for 14 years.
