Dana Altman reaches Pac-12 milestone with Oregon's win over Utah
Dana Altman has his 150th career Pac-12 win.
The Ducks’ 68-56 victory over Utah on Saturday gave Altman another achievement to add to a remarkable résumé. He’s the 11th coach in Pac-12 history to reach 150 career wins.
Altman joins Lute Olson (Arizona), John Wooden (UCLA), Mike Montgomery (Stanford, Cal), Slats Gill (Oregon State), Hec Edmundson (Washington), Jack Friel (Washington State), Ralph Miller (Oregon State), Nibs Price (Cal), Marv Harshman (Washington State, Washington), and Sean Miller (Arizona).

Oregon is now 22-3 all-time against Utah.
Altman, the winningest coach in UO program history, has won 21 of the 22 games he’s coached against the Runnin’ Utes. He’s also led Oregon to 20-win seasons in each of his first 12 years with the program.
He’ll have his work cut out for him to reach that mark this year. Though the Ducks won Saturday, they’re just 13-9 on the year. Oregon is fighting to stay in consideration for an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament, and it’ll need to keep stacking wins.
