Coach Jeff Allen marked two personal coaching milestones with two special wins this regular season.  

Allen, who coaches women's basketball, notched his 400thwin as a head coach with a victory in the Lady Cougars' final game of the season, Feb. 27 against Cisco College. Allen had picked up his 300thwin as head coach for Collin College with a win over Southwestern Christian College on Jan. 19. 

When asked how it felt to have reached those milestones, he said, "Honestly, I felt proud to have coached so many great players/people and know I have great assistants."

Allen said his philosophy begins with recruiting people who will represent Collin well. 

"Yes, they have to be good basketball players, but it's all about the high character we look for when we are recruiting," Allen said.

He also recognized the college's administration, saying none of his accomplishments would have been possible without its support.
