HARTFORD, Conn. -- Syracuse's Jim Boeheim and Connecticut's Jim Calhoun have set the record for most total wins between opposing coaches when their teams met Wednesday night.
Boeheim entered the game with 847 wins and Calhoun came in with 840.
The 1,687 total bettered the mark of 1,665 set by Texas Tech's Bob Knight and Oklahoma State's Eddie Sutton on Feb. 25, 2006. Sutton was not at the game because of illness but it still counted on his record.
The mark for two coaches who were both at the game was 1,647 between Duke's Mike Krzyzewski and Calhoun on Nov. 27, 2009.
