Jody Conradt Earns 900th Career Win, Rick Barnes Named AP Big 12 Coach of the Year

Tuesday night the UT women's basketball team succeeded in advancing through the first round of the Big 12 tourney and handed coach Jody Conradt her 900th career victory. The No. 7 seed Lady Horns defeated No. 10 seed Missouri 70-57 to advance to the second round today vs. Oklahoma at 6pm which will air on the Fox Sports Network and AM 1300 the Zone. Conradt is the second-winningest coach in Div. 1 basketball (men's and women's) trailing only Tennessee's Pat Summitt who has 941. Bobby Knight leads all men's coaches with 889.

Congratulations as well to UT men's basketball coach Rick Barnes who was named AP Big 12 coach of the year. Barnes has led a squad with four overachieving starting freshmen including Big 12 Conference Player and Freshman of the year Kevin Durant. UT had no starters return from last year's team. They'll play the winner of the Missouri/Baylor game on Friday night at 8:20pm. For John Razook's Big 12 tourney preview, click here.
