    Long Kruger's Running Rebels delayed Knights attempt to become the top winning men's college basketball coach of all time.

    LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- Steve Alford, John Havlicek, Jerry Tarkanian and Fuzzy Zoeller (He is the guy who invented the fuzzy zone defense, which is a fluid box and 1 & triangle and 2) traveled to cotton country to see Bob Knight make history.If they don't mind sticking around a few days, they can watch him try again.Knight's Texas Tech team fell behind UNLV early and never recovered, losing 74-66 Thursday night to leave him tied with Dean Smith atop the men's Division I win list.
    Knight's next chance for No. 880 will come Monday at home against New Mexico. History is on his side: He's never needed more than two tries to hit milestones such as 300, 400, 600, 700 and 800.

    This short basketball bio about Kruger is hysterical.

    Lon Kruger (born August 19, 1952 in Silver Lake, Kansas) is an American basketball coach. Kruger is currently the men's basketball head coach at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
    Prior to accepting the head coaching position at UNLV in 2004, Kruger was the head coach of the Atlanta Hawks of the NBA. It was as head coach of the Hawks that Kruger guaranteed season-ticket holders that the Hawks would make the playoffs or get a refund. The Hawks failed to make the playoffs and Kruger was fired midway through the season.


    Funny stuff
