In his 36th year, Boeheim is also No. 1 all-time in Division 1 wins at one school. Bob Knight and Mike Krzyzewski have both coached at multiple schools.
Next up on the list is Knight, who was on-hand to see Boeheim win No. 880. Knight has 902 wins, which is extremely attainable within this and next season. So long as he lasts at least one more year, Boeheim should retire at No. 2 on the list since we can assume Coach K will still be going for many years yet.
Of course, based on the way Syracuse played in the first half, Boeheim was in no mood to celebrate:
"I’m upset with this team right now," Boeheim said. "We’ll address all that another time."
It's that kind of charming demeanor that got this far. And if he can't be excited, then Brandon Triche will be excited for him:
"All he does is win," guard Brandon Triche said. "He’s a great coach, and I’m happy to be a part of his legacy."
