|Pat Summitt's six NCAA titles ranks second only to John Wooden's 10 national championships at UCLA. Kentucky's Adolph Rupp is next in line with four titles.
But Summitt is tops when you're talking NCAA Tournament wins. Of the three NCAA champion coaches, Summitt's teams have played in and recorded the most tourney victories, winning 85 of 102 NCAA games. Wooden's Bruins won 47 of 57 NCAA contests. Rupp's Wildcats won 30 of 48.
Summitt also is the quickest coach to win 800 games, doing so in 961 games. Rupp achieved 800 wins in 972 games.
Former North Carolina men's coach Dean Smith, college basketball's all-time winningest college coach, retired with an 879-254 record in 36 seasons. He needed 1,029 games to reach the 800-win plateau.
