Tara (65) is nine months older than Geno (64) and has nine more career wins, 1036 vs. 1027. They both seem destined to break Pat Summitt's record of 1098 within the next two or three seasons, but who will end up with the most career wins as between them?

If they both coach 10 more seasons, Geno would have to average one more win than Tara per season to pull ahead. If they both coach five seasons, Geno will have to average two more wins. Geno certainly has an advantage by playing in a much weaker conference, but he may on average play a tougher out-of-conference schedule.

Tara probably would have been uncatchable had she not taken a sabbatical in 1995-96 to train and coach the Olympic team, a season in which Stanford went 29-3 with Amy Tucker and Marianne Stanley at the helm.

It will likely depend on whoever retires sooner. I'm guessing Tara will.

SO ...I lost a bet with Rock about how many wins Chicago would get this year. My punishment - T. Young as my avatar. Well it could be worse!

I agree. I doubt that Tara will coach more than 5 years, maybe less I suspect Geno will coach at least long enough to set the record, no matter who he has to pass

If my math is correct, that is also the reason why she's tied with Auriemma for most NCAA Tournament bids. If she hadn't taken the sabbatical, she'd have a one season advantage over him.
