500 and counting

Men’s basketball team members celebrate with their head coach, Mark Edwards, after defeating rival University of Chicago, 72-49, Feb. 28 and helping Edwards win the 500th game of his coaching career. Every one of those victories has been earned at WUSTL, where Edwards is 500-235 in 28 seasons on the Danforth Campus. Edwards, who has guided the Bears to 25 consecutive winning seasons, is the 28th coach in NCAA Division III history to achieve 500 or more wins.
