Matthews Becomes NJ's Winningest Coach
Stockton head coach Gerry Matthews earned his 515th career victory Saturday as the Ospreys defeated Farmingdale State 78-58 in the championship game of the Stockton Tip-Off Tournament. With the win, Matthews surpassed former Princeton coach Pete Carrill's all-time record for coaching victories in New Jersey men's college basketball.
Matthews, in his 27th year at Stockton, now has a career record of 515-217. He has guided Stockton to two NJAC championships apiece in three different decades (1980's, 1990's, 2000's) and his Osprey teams have never had a losing season. Matthews ranks among the top 20 active Division III coaches in winning percentage (.704) and victories (515). The dean of the NJAC, he has led Stockton to 13 NCAA Tournament berths, highlighted by two Final Four appearances (1987, 2009), and 14 20-win seasons.
