I believe that with your caveat of 19 games that Everett Dean doesn't qualify. I'm gonna go with John Wooden and his 47-10, .825 record. Closely followed by Tom Izzo I believe. Let me know if that does it.

Regards

Ron

John Wooden*, UCLA 25 years 47-10 record .825 percentage

Krzyzewski's .797. His 55 tournament victories were second all-time, trailing only Dean Smith's 65

Since there was no winner, I'm going to extend the contest until August 30 at 11:59 pm, CST.

The hint that I'm going to give is that the NCAA has more than one division. All persons who guessed previously may post one more guess. Otherwise, the same rules apply as before.

Good luck!

I think but Ray Harper is it, but since he has already been guessed and it could be wrong, I will guess Mr. Harper's mortal enemy: Mike Dunlap of Metropolitan State with a % of .826.

Thanks for sponsoring this fun contest. Even if it is a tainted win, I'll take it. As it so happens, I actually collect 75 Topps Mini's so two of the cards go straight into a collection already waiting for them

As for the others, SGC96 anything is fine by me

Best Regards

Ron

Snafu at the Post Office kept my cards from reaching their destination for a little extra time but I got them today. Thanks again for sponsoring this contest and sharing some beautiful SGC cards with me.

Best Regards

Ron
