So 5 active HOF coaches Bennett has beaten would be Krzyzewski, Boeheim, Williams, Pitino and Brown?
Great ESPN factoid: Tony Bennett only coach with wins over all 5 active HOF college coaches.

The key to consistency is consistency in everything you do, starting with how you think....
Gary is smart, professional and skilled. He fits far better as 8th man on a contender than anything on a bad team.
I feel kinda bad for Gary Neal. He would have given up money to the T'Wolves to join a playoff team, and Flip just didn't see it that way.
Al Jefferson: "I shot 100 percent from 3 tonight."
Al Jefferson (2-of-3 from long range this season) says he's waiting for that invitation from the NBA for the 3-point contest.
Reason P.J. Hairston wasn't on bench: He didn't have a sports coat to conform to NBA dress policy.
Final: Hornets 98, Magic 83
Mo Williams 4-of-7 from 3 tonight.
Hornets in bonus the rest of the game.
"To guard Al 1-on-1 you've got to be disciplined. If you bite on his fake, give him an angle, he's going to score on you." -- Steve Clifford
Gerald Henderson with his best overall game in a while. He's 6-of-11 from field and 2-of-3 from 3-point range.
Steve Clifford chose not to pull Zeller after 5th foul.
That pick-and-roll between Mo Williams and Cody Zeller has been quite effective tonight.
That's 5th foul on Cody Zeller.
Hornets have 15 turnovers to Magic's 8.
Ben Gordon in to start the fourth for the Magic.
Nik Vucevic has four points on 2-of-8 shooting. Normally he's a major problem for the Hornets to contain.
Hornets shot 13-of-21 in the third quarter for 28 points in building their 11-point lead entering fourth quarter.
Mo Williams (15 points, 10 assists) has been pretty terrific so far as a Hornet.
Hornets shooting 8-of-12 in the second half.
Nik Vucevic having a rough night. Normally he plays very well versus the Hornets.
Henderson's basket ruled good.
Assuming Gerald Henderson's basket is not ruled late, Hornets will lead 43-42 at the half.
"We need to start having more meetings about his defense...and less about what he's got to do to be a dependable player." Cliff in July.
That ballhawking is something I thought we'd see a lot more of from Lance Stephenson.
Hornets with eight turnovers, Magic with none. That's why this is a two-point game.
Cody Zeller with his third foul.
Celtics 53, Warriors 30. Oh my.
They found a seat on the front row for Kemba tonight, as he hates sitting behind the bench.
Five Hornets turnovers to none for Magic. Said Clifford pre-game: "Our team cannot turn the ball over. When we turn the ball over, we lose."
Luke Ridnour, flopper.
End of first: Hornets 28, Magic 22. Hornets are 12-of-22 from the field.
Biz with two quick fouls.
Here comes Biz.
Al Jefferson 3-pointer (upon further review).
I do not see P.J. Hairston along the Hornets bench.
Cody Zeller with two dunks to start the game.
I'm told P.J. Hairston being inactive tonight may relate to his having missed a weight training session.
I asked Clifford if he plans to play Kemba and Mo together when Kemba returns. "Definitely," Clifford replied.
Tonight Biz will get about seven minutes in each half as they try to get his game conditioning back.
Bismack Biyombo will play tonight for the Hornets.
Aaron Gordon again out tonight for Magic.
Good morning from Orlando!! Wishing everyone an outstanding day...
Might've seen worst flop ever in Arizona-Utah game. Arizona kid turned to post and Utah kid became a piñata. Why do college refs enable this
Joe Lunardi has Davidson in tournament right now as an at-large. If that happens, McKillop should get a statue.
One way Krzyzewski and Boeheim are quite similar: Neither believes in deep rotations. They tend to live and die by best 7 players.
Thank you hamburger
Kentucky now blowing up Arkansas.
Been in cold weather for a while now.. Get to Orlando thinking about a sunny day.. Get here it's cold and rainy 😞..
I'll always remember Mason's agent, Don Cronson saying, "When Mase goes out, the moon is always full."
Rest in peace Anthony Mason.
I took so much grief in August for saying Hornets might be closer to 10th in East than 4th. Weird that I am punished for being right.
Boston is my favorite city in this country. But, man, the winters are hell.
Final: Celtics 106, Hornets 98.
A loss in Boston last season cost the Hornets a lot. They might look back on tonight same way if they don't come back here.
Pacers beat Cavs.
Al Jefferson is scoreless in the second half. Missed his only two shots.
Turnovers are destroying the Hornets tonight.
Mo Williams has been terrific offensively, but he sure doesn't close out very well.
Hornets have double Celtics in turnovers 14-7.
Isaiah Thomas is lots of fun to watch create.
Hornets' 16-point third-quarter lead has slipped to six entering final quarter. Some sloppy ballhandling.
Tenth Hornets turnover tonight. That's what's keeping them from really pulling away.
Third time in his first four games Mo Williams has reached 20 points. He's 5-of-9 from 3 tonight.
Kidd-Gilchrist double-double with 3 1/2 minutes left in third.
Mo Williams feeling it.
Very good ball-rotation out of that Big Al double-team to set up Mo Williams with an unguarded 3.
Tyler forces Cody into a walk. Guessing that will come up the next family holiday.
Hornets on a 23-1 run since midway through the second quarter.
MKG has nine rebounds in 15 minutes. Best rebounding small forward in the NBA.
Despite the Celtics' record and all the rebuilding moves the Garden still rocks on a Friday night. Great fans.
Halftime: Hornets 49, Celtics 45.
Celtics are 5-of-8 from 3-point range.
End of first: Celtics 27, Hornets 21.
Someone asked Brad Stevens about his team's practice habits. He said he doesn't know since half the team hasn't yet practiced as Celtics.
MKG has grabbed in at least three 50-50 balls already. Stole that rebound from Tyler Zeller.
Midrange Al didn't. Big Al, maybe.
Some "ooohs" from the crowd when Al Jefferson ball-fakes Tyler Zeller on back-to-back possessions for layups. Celtics drafted Big Al.
