NCAA Career Wins
- 879 - Dean Smith
- 750 - Bob Knight
129. That's the difference between Dean's career wins and Bob Knight's after
his next victory. By our calculations, if he averages 26 wins a year for
the next five years, he moves ahead. On the one hand, Knight has in place
potentially the best talent he's had in years. On the other is, well, Bob
Knight. He's just as liable to win 15 games after some self-destructive episodes
as he is to make the Final Four. Who the hell knows?
Anyway, here's the breakdown on years and wins it would take.
