Jim Boeheim became the third Division I men's coach to reach 900 wins as No. 3 Syracuse beat Detroit, 72-68, on Monday night in the Gotham Classic in Syracuse, N.Y.
Boeheim, 68 and in his 37th year at his alma mater, is 900-304 with the Orange and joined an elite fraternity. Mike Krzyzewski (936) and Bob Knight (902) are the only other men's Division I coaches to win that many games.
James Southerland had 22 points for Syracuse (10-0), which increased its home winning streak to 30 games, longest in the nation.
