Longest Home-Court Winning Streaks in College Basketball History (and the Longest Current Ones, Too)

The 1947-48 Kentucky Wildcats Won All Their Home Games...And The National Title

The 1947-48 Kentucky Wildcats Won All Their Home Games…And The National Title

You think that Duke 41-game home-court winning streak was something? Pshaw. That’s nothing.

The longest college basketball home win streak ever is more than three times as great. It’s Kentucky. The Wildcats hold so many team records, and here’s yet another one. And they won three National Championships in the middle of their record stretch.

Including Kentucky at the top with 129 home wins in a row (over 12 years!), seven streaks have been at least nearly twice as long as Duke’s. (80 games and up).

That includes another group of Wildcats prominent here. Arizona holds two of the longest home win streaks ever and the third current longest, too.

The game and competition have changed much over time. Do you think we’ll see streaks like the all-time top 10 again?

Bill Belichick, Tom Landry and NFL Head Coaches with the Most Postseason Wins

Most Postseason Wins For An NFL Head Coach: Tom Landry And Bill Belichick (For Now)

Most Postseason Wins For An NFL Head Coach: Tom Landry And Bill Belichick (For Now)

What a game today between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens! Wow.

And wow for Bill Belichick. He’s now officially tied with Dallas Cowboys legend Tom Landry with the most postseason wins for an NFL head coach, a sleek 20.

And Belichick isn’t done this season or certainly (has to be) next season. No one has any idea how long, though – his contract is shrouded in mystery! This guy.

Don Shula is real close with 19 playoff wins.

The loser today, John Harbaugh, does make the top 20. Harbaugh has won a mightily impressive 10 playoff games out of 15 in a relatively short time at the helm.

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin and Kansas City Chiefs skipper Andy Reid are the other actives.

Five of those six coaches mentioned have won Super Bowls – as did most below. Only Reid, Marv Levy, Dan Reeves and Bud Grant did not (but they did all make it to the Big Game).
