New 900 club member

Fri., Feb. 8, 2013

North Carolina women’s basketball coach Sylvia Hatchell earned her 900th career victory when the No. 16 Tar Heels beat Boston College 80-52 on Thursday night in Boston. Xylina McDaniel had 15 points and seven rebounds for North Carolina. The Tar Heels lost to No. 5 Duke on Sunday – their first home loss of the season – spoiling Hatchell’s first chance to become the third women’s coach in NCAA history to reach the milestone. Hatchell now joins Pat Summitt and Jody Conradt in the women’s 900-win club. Hatchell is tops among active coaches, with Rutgers’ C. Vivian Stringer two wins behind. Three men’s coaches have reached the 900-win mark – Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Bob Knight. – Associated Press
