Pittsburgh Panthers Head Coach Jamie Dixon earned his 200th victory tonight against Amercan University 61-46 at the Peterson Events Center. It took him 255 games to do it. Only 11 coaches in men’s basketball have done it in fewer. Only Mark Few of Gonzaga and Roy Williams of Kansas also made it to 200 victories in their eighth season, which is a better statement considering the difficulty of winning college basketball games today.
Coach Dixon has been nothing but an outstanding representative of the university, and hopefully he gets a few hundred more victories for the Pitt Panthers.
Congrats to Coach Dixon, Hail to Pitt.
