2,000

Wildcat

My sister-in-law has this poster.

I wanted to think of a catchy title for this post, but decided that “2,000” was worthy enough. Simple. To the point. It requires no further explanation for the feat accomplished.

The University of Kentucky — the winningest school in NCAA history — made history again onMonday, as they drubbed (and doubled-up) Drexel, 88-44. The win was the 2,000th in the school’s 107 years of basketball, and makes the Wildcats the first team in college basketball to reach such a milestone.

The storied program is just ahead of North Carolina (1,992) and Kansas (1,980) for most wins all-time.

With all three teams highly touted this season (with Kansas atop the polls for the time being), it leaves open the possibility that we can see all three school’s eclipse the 2,000-win plateau by the time April rolls around.

But before we look ahead to the future, let’s take a moment and tip our caps to the Wildcats for the feat they accomplished on the floor Monday night, because something 107 years in the making is nothing to sneeze at.

Then again, I’m sure we will be writing this very same post a few years from now when Kentucky

reaches the mark again… you know, after they inevitably vacate some of the wins under John Calipari (see: UMassand Memphis)

    Very clever remark at the end. Can you imagine if the NCAA vacated wins to bring them under 2,000?!?!
