Knight: 876 wins, counting
With nearly 7,100 fans watching on at the Thomas Assembly Center, on one of the most special nights in Louisiana Tech University athletic history, Texas Tech held on for a 64-59 victory over the Bulldogs.
Make that 876 victories now for Knight, the same as the late and great University of Kentucky baron named Rupp. Both are now tied for second place on the all-time win chart for NCAA Division I men’s basketball, a mere three shy of Dean Smith.
It will be only a matter of time before Knight puts a check mark by that achievement.
