1,000 wins. Think about it. That’s 25 wins a season for 40 years. It’s a total that only a half-dozen NCAA basketball coaches (four women’s, two men’s) have amassed.

That number could grow by one as soon as Wednesday evening when Women’s Basketball Hall of Famer Barbara Stevens puts her team out on the Dana Center court to take on Adelphi University in Northeast-10 Conference play.
