Syracuse men’s basketball coach Jim Boeheim hit a career milestone on Monday night, getting his 900th win. This puts him within shouting distance of most wins all time, but can he get there before Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski? Or will someone else beat them both?

On the list of college men’s basketball coaches with the most wins, Boeheim is in the seven spot, right behind Bob Knight, who has 902. Boeheim will almost certainly pass Knight this season.

Coach K sits in the four spot, with 936 wins. Both Boeheim and Coach K have great teams that usually make it into the NCAA tournament, and they’ll both likely be coaching for quite some time.

The most winning coach in men’s college basketball is Harry Statham, with 1,062 wins in 46 seasons at McKendree University—and he’s still active. Last, let’s not forget about Herb Magee, the 71-year-old coach from Philadelphia University, who has 944 wins. He is third all time, just a few wins ahead of Coach K.
