ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) -Northern State University's Don Meyer set the record for career wins in men's college basketball with his 903rd on Saturday night - an 82-62 victory over the University of Mary.
His .750 winnning percentage (903-301) was compiled at three universities in a career that began in 1972 and nearly ended last September in a car-truck accident that sent him to the hospital for 55 days, forced doctors to amputate his lower left leg and led to the discovery of a slow-growing cancer.
Coaching from the sidelines in a wheelchair, the 64-year-old Wayne, Neb., moved past Bob Knight for the career win record.
Meyer's 37-year coaching record is 37-41 at Hamline University, 665-179 at Lipscomb University, and 201-81 at Northern.
