Mike Anthony: Geno Auriemma reaches Pat Summitt with 1,098 victories but numbers don’t tell every story of transcendent career

“I would like to think that if you’ve done something for 37 years or whatever it is, that you’re going to have some milestones,” Auriemma, 66, said after the Huskies defeated Providence 87-50 at Gampel Pavilion, a building for which there wasn’t a blueprint when he was hired in 1985. “And if you’re fortunate enough, you have some pretty important milestones. And if you’re lucky enough to be surrounded by the people I’ve been surrounded with, they are actually meaningful milestones. I’m sure someday I’ll be able to look back on all those and appreciate it when it’s all over.”
