UNDATED (AP) _ Two Hall of Fame coaches reached milestones tonight:

-- N.C. State women's coach Kay Yow earned her 700th career win when her Wolfpack team beat Florida State, 68-51. Yow returned to the bench two weeks ago after two months away to fight breast cancer and now she's the sixth women's coach to reach 700 wins.

-- Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun earned his 500th win at Connecticut when the Huskies beat Syracuse, 67-60. That gives Calhoun a lifetime 748-322 mark in 35 years of coaching college basketball.
