KUSA - Colorado State head coach Tom Hilbert earned his 600th career victory on Saturday night as his 10th ranked Rams (23-0, 14-0) remained undefeated with a sweep over Nevada (25-18, 25-18, 25-19) in front of 4,418 fans at Moby Arena.
With the win, Hilbert becomes just the 10th coach in NCAA history with 600 career wins and a career winning percentage above .770.
"I have 600 wins because I've been consistently good over the past 25 years, but I've been a coach all that time and I've gotten to do a really cool job," Hilbert said. "That's what 600, to me, means. I'm not winning any of these games, but I am shepherding this program through a pretty good time, and I'm happy about that."
With 23 straight victories, CSU tied the school record for most consecutive victories, which was also set in 2003. Dating back to Oct. 25, 2012, the Rams have now won 31 consecutive regular-season matches, which is the longest active streak in the nation.
Next up for the Rams: hosting the New Mexico Lobos (20-5, 10-4), on Thursday night at 7 p.m. The match is designated as a White Out, and the first 500 fans in attendance will receive a free commemorative poster.
