Connors State coach only a few wins away.

The count down has begun for victory number 500 for Connors State Cowboys head Coach Bill Muse. Muse is just three victories away from reaching his 500th career coach victory in 21 seasons of junior college coaching, all at Connors State College.

Muse collected win number 497 last Monday night when the Cowboys rolled over Northeastern A&M 87-72 on the Golden Norse home floor.

“I have thought about reaching the milestone a little in the back of my mind. Right now we just want to take one game at a time. The remainder of our games are all conference games and they are important for us to win and get a good seed for the Region Tournament,” said Muse. “But, it will be nice to get No. 500, it’s something every coach strives for in his career.”
