#ClimbTo1000: When Will Jim Boeheim Hit The Next Milestone?

USA TODAY Sports

The stretch between Syracuse Orange head coach Jim Boeheim's 100th and 200th coaching victories was roughly five years. The amount of time between his 800th and 900th victory was closer to three years and a month. That's a little nuts.

The stretch between Syracuse Orange head coach Jim Boeheim's 100th and 200th coaching victories was roughly five years. The amount of time between his 800th and 900th victory was closer to three years and a month. That's a little nuts.

Boeheim is currently winning games at a clip unmatched in his entire career. In the last four seasons, he's won 29.75 games per season. To give you some perspective...

'86/'87 - '89/'90: 28.25 wins/season

'99/'00 - '02/'03: 26.0 wins/season

'76/'77 - '79/'80: 25 wins/season

Given the way his staff is recruiting and the way he restocks year after year despite senior losses and early entries, there doesn't appear to be any sign of him slowing up.

So since smart money seems to be on Jim coaching for quite some time, when can we expect him to hit the next round of milestones? If nothing else, it will give national sportswriters ample time to pre-write their next "Jim Boeheim is overrated" columns and store them accordingly.

Assuming Boeheim keeps roughly the same pace he's been on...

925 wins: With 21 more regular-season games ahead, depending on how the BET and NCAA Tournament shake out, he should reach this mark no later than November 2013.

950 wins: Keeping with this pace, he could very well be at 950 by the end of the 2013-2014 season. Worst case, again, he'd do it in November 2014.

1,000 wins: Assuming he sticks around, and there's nothing to indicate he won't at the moment, he could reach the 1,000 win plateau around February/March 2016. Who knows, maybe he'll do it against Coach K and Duke. He'll end the 2015-2016 season somewhere around the 1,000 - 1,010 win mark.

A lot can happen between now and then but if Boeheim sticks around for another three seasons, that might be enough to hit that illustrious mark. Not that he's counting (so he says)...
