Jim Boeheim Passes Bobby Knight with Win 903
Syracuse men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim picked up with No. 903, moving him past Bobby Knight into second on the NCAA men's Division I all-time wins list, as the Orange thumped Rutgers, 78-53, Wednesday at the Carrier Dome.
Brandon Triche led the No. 7 Syracuse with 25 points, while C.J. Fair chipped in 15 points. Michael Carter Williams had 12 points and 10 assists for Syracuse (13-1 overall, 1-0 Big East).
Eli Carter had a team high 19 points for Rutgers (9-3, 0-1).
Boeheim trails only Duke's Mike Krzyzewski on the all-time wins list. Coach K has 939 victories. The two will likely meet annually beginning next season when Syracuse moves to the ACC.
