Statham Ties Coaching Win Record
Longtime McKendree University men’s basketball coach Harry Statham tied history on Thursday night in Lebanon, Illinois. Statham’s Bearcats basketball team beat Wisconsin-Parkside 92-85 for the coach’s 1098th career win. The victory ties the late Pat Summitt, former University of Tennessee women’s basketball coach for most career wins by a college coach in basketball history. Statham can break the all time wins mark with a McKendree victory this coming Saturday when the Bearcats host Lewis University at 3:00 PM in Lebanon.
