Mar. 28, 2011 By Jenna Bartlo

KCAL/KCBS Sport Central LA featured Biola’s men’s basketball Dave Holmquist for reaching 800th win. Sports reporter Jaime Maggio interviewed the “sports legend” after achieving his latest milestone.

This season – his 31st as coach of the Biola Eagles and his 34th overall – Holmquist joined the ranks of elite coaches who have 800 or more career victories, a mark he reached on Dec. 29. Among the 15 other men’s college basketball coaches to reach the rare milestone are such legends as Bobby Knight, Mike Krzyzewski and Dean Smith.

With his career record of 816-300 at the season’s end, Holmquist now stands alone as the winnningest college basketball coach in California history, having surpassed Eddie Sutton of the University of San Francisco, who had 804.
