LISLE, Ill. -- The Benedictine University men's basketball team presented head coach Keith Bunkenburg with his 200th career collegiate coaching victory with its 94-59 win over Rockford College on Thursday (Feb. 7). Bunkenburg is in his 13th season as the Eagles' mentor.
"I guess this means I'm getting old," joked Bunkenburg, when asked about the significance of the milestone. "In all seriousness, no coach can ever be successful without a combination of quality student-athletes, assistant coaches who mesh with your coaching philosophy and a supportive administration. I've been very blessed to have all three of these components during my time at Benedictine."
Bunkenburg has averaged 16 wins per season during his tenure. He has claimed four conference titles and made four trips to the NCAA Division III tournament.
Bunkenburg's 200 wins is second only to legendary Eagles' head coach Tony LaScala's 385 wins in 29 seasons at the BU helm.
