ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia coach Andy Landers won his 800th career game when the Bulldogs routed Savannah State 74-28 on Thursday night.
Landers has won 718 games in 30 years at Georgia. His first 82 wins in the 1970s came at Roane State Community College in Harriman, Tenn.
Landers' career record is 800-252 in 33-plus seasons. On Sunday, North Carolina's Sylvia Hatchell became the fourth women's coach to record her 800th win -- joining Tennessee' Pat Summitt, Rutgers' Vivian Stringer and Jody Conradt, who retired from Texas in March 2007.
Angel Robinson scored 18 points for the Bulldogs (11-6), while Ashley Houts added 17. Crissa Jackson led Savannah State (3-14) with eight points.
