Knight's record-setter could have been much more

Bob Knight is closing in on victories that will be historic in scope but pyrrhic in nature. To understand the pyrrhic part, you need to know about "Project 880" at Texas Tech. Knight, who is now tied with Dean Smith at 879 victories, likely will become the winningest coach in Division I men's college basketball annals during the Red Raiders' ongoing four-game home stand. In hope that people actually will show up to see Knight enter the record books, Tech has been offering $8.80 general admission seats to the four games at United Spirit Arena. (ESPN.com)
