Bentley University’s Barbara Stevens Joins 900-Win Club

Barbara Stevens is the third fastest to reach 900, behind only Pat Summitt and Tara VanDerveer

History was made at the Dana Center Saturday afternoon as Bentley University’ Barbara Stevens became only the sixth women’s basketball coach in NCAA history to reach the 900-win plateau.

The 98-82 Northeast-10 Conference win against St. Anselm, Bentley’s 18th without a loss this season, lifted Stevens, a 2006 inductee into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, to 900-246 in 37 years, including 743-155 in 28 seasons with the Falcons. She’s the third fastest to reach 900, behind only Pat Summitt (Tennessee) and Tara VanDerveer (Stanford).

“This was a tremendous opportunity to reflect on a career that I’ve been so blessed to have,” Stevens said, who was able to reach 900 on the day her program was having its annual alumni day. “It’s not about me, but all the tremendous players and assistant coaches we’ve had.”
