Coach Knight Set for Win Number 900

Bob Knight is about to enter a realm occupied by only two other Division I basketball coaches, and they're both women.

When the Hall of Fame coach gets win Number 900 he will join former Texas coach Jody Conradt and Tennessee's Pat Summitt as the only members of the Division I club. Knight's first shot comes Saturday at Oklahoma State.

Knight, 67, has been a head coach for 42 years at three Division I schools. He got his 100th victory at Army. Then moved to Indiana, where his Hoosiers went 662-239 and won three national championships from 1971-00.

In September, Knight signed a three-year contract extension with Texas Tech that goes through the 2011-12 season. Two years earlier, his son Pat was appointed head coach designate and will succeed his father upon retirement..
