Former Oregon star Luke Jackson, now the head coach at Northwest Christian University, will try delay the milestone when OIT and NCU meet at 7:30 p.m. at the Morse Event Center.
The only two other coaches with 1,000 career wins are former Tennessee women’s coach Pat Summitt and current McKendree University men’s coach Harry Statham.
