With the victory over ECU, Geno enters 2015 with 890 wins. If my arithmetic is up to snuff, that tells me UConn needs 10 more wins to get him to 900!

He's also 208 career wins away from Pat Summitt.

Win number 900, assuming UConn keeps winning, will happen at the XL Center on February 3. I have my kids that week but will do everything within my power to go...

Let's just hope nothing fluky happens Sunday against SJU. I know at lot of BY representatives will be at the St Johns game, so I assume the mojo within MSG will be exceptional. :)

208 countdown is too far away to think about at the moment for me, but now with the best all time winning %, and closing in on 900, it's just amazing.

Stringer, Vanderveer and Landers are all approaching 940 ( if they haven't hit it yet) so if they keep at it they will get to Summitt before Geno does.

No malice here alex and SJU does have a good record but none of their wins are over a ranked team. It is just my opinion the only thing fluky that could happen is if they had to play the mens team. They are up to #15 ;)
I do not see a possible loss for this team unless they stub their toe in the final four. Aware of #1 coming in on 2/9. I don't see them leaving with the same ranking rather something that more resembles a spanking...:) No disrespect to your post but my count down and I am sure Geno's also is to that of another NC!

2017-18 to hit 1000
2020-21 or 2021-22 for Geno to pass Summitt

Gotta correct a couple of things here.

First, if Geno is still coaching in 2020-21, he will almost certainly pass PHS that season if he doesn't do it the year before. Over the last six years he averaged 37.0 wins per year. If he does that the next six years--which I think is entirely plausible with 2 years of Breanna and Moriah, plus 4 years of Kia, Gabby, KLS, Napheesa, Crystal and others--he will end 2019-20 with 1,101 wins. But, if not, 2020-21 is a virtual lock if he's still coaching. By way of reference, his worst seven year stretch since 1994 season has been 228 wins, so with the talent he's got in hand 220 wins over the next seven years is a low bar.

Then, in terms of Stringer, Landers, Vanderveer ... no way do they all get to 1099 before Geno. Over the last six years Geno has picked up 99, 87 and 19 wins relative to CVS, AL and TV respectively. To pull ahead of them he needs to pick up 51, 45 and 38 wins respectively over the next six years. Assuming he sticks around, I think he'll surpass CVS and AL easily. Hard to say with TV--just depends if Tara lands some big recruits over the next several years. As it stands, I'd expect Geno to pick up 10 games or more on Tara this year and next, so I like his chances to pick up 38 over six years.

The wins are mind boggling for all these coaches. But, I imagine to Geno it's the National Championships and the incredible number of outstanding players and graduates coming from his program that means most to him?

Can you imagine, Pat Summitt being # 4 in most wins being a strong possibility. :)

Well, it's 891 wins now for Geno. Tulsa, SMU and Temple get him to 894 without any suspense. USF on 1/18 will be a partially frustrating game that UConn ends up winning by a good margin. After that win #895, we're looking at UCF, Cincy, ECU Part 2, Temple Part 2, and then Cincy Part 2 on 2/3 for #900.

Best case scenario is UConn wins out this season, a feat by the team that would put Geno 181 wins away from 1,098. If indeed Geno coaches six more years, he'd get those 181 wins without much trouble. I'm not just assuming 38-1 is a given in the 2014-15 season; just that it's the optimal outcome and what it would mean.
