EMMITSBURG -- Not even low-key Jim Phelan could downplay the magnitude of this occasion.
He was honored before the game, after the game and at almost every step he took around Knott Arena last night.
Phelan is a legend in this town, and, after 37 years, 683 victories and 1,000 games, he deserves the admiration.
Phelan became only the 10th coach in National Collegiate
Athletic Association history to reach 1,000 games, guiding Mount St. Mary's to a 73-67 victory over Wagner before 2,875 at Knott Arena.
