With 859 career wins, Huggins ranks fourth all-time among Division 1 men’s coaches behind only Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim and North Carolina’s Roy Williams. He has been to two Final Fours (1992, 2010). Wright has 570 career wins and is one of only three active coaches with more than one NCAA championship. Coach K has five rings, and Williams has three. GQ Jay led Villanova to NCAA titles in 2016 and 2018. Wright has more NCAA titles than Boeheim, Kentucky’s John Calipari, Michigan State’s Tom Izzo, and Kansas’ Bill Self yet all four of them are in the Hall, along with Coach K and Williams
Jay Wright and Bob Huggins were on ballot. Not sure how they’re not in. They will be eventually. https://t.co/Tts2LPZJfr— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) April 6, 2019
“Everything seems to take its own rhythm, I’ve watched this enough,” Lambert said of Wright’s status. “You hope that all the right people get in over time.” So maybe next year? “I hope,” he said. “It would be a joy, wouldn’t it?” Yes it would. Huggins and Wright should have been in yesterday.
