Fran McCaffery breaks two records in one week

It has been an eventful week for Fran McCaffery, as he first broke Iowa’s men’s basketball Big Ten win record when he recorded win No. 127 against Rutgers.

He beat the Scarlet Knights 86-77 to surpass Tom Davis’ 126 wins before breaking the overall win record later in the week. During his postgame news conference, McCaffery was typically modest and heaped praise on Davis and his players.

“Well, considering the amount of respect I have for that man and how long I’ve known him and the standard that he’s set for anybody that came after him, it’s a tremendous feeling.

“It’s also an indication, it’s indicative of, I have really good players. I have really good players with character,” McCaffery said.
