The U.S. Department of Labor recently projected that in the coming decade, 90 percent of new high-growth, high-wage jobs will require some postsecondary education. As a result, students with nonacademic interests, such as athletics, can benefit from earning a degree.
Women who wish to launch careers in professional basketball may want to consider attending Alvernia University in Pennsylvania, as the institution's team leader has acquired more than 400 career wins. According to the school, women's basketball head coach Kevin Calabria has a career record of 400-196, which is a 0.671 winning percentage.
The last time Calabria had a losing season was his first year he held the position, which was in 1989. Over his two-decade career at Alvernia, he has led the team to six conference titles, an Eastern College Athletic Conference title and six berths in the NCAA Division III Tournament.
He is the 35th coach in Division III history and the 27th active coach to reach 400 wins. Calabria is the third coach in the Commonwealth Conference to earn 400 victories.
His 100th career victory was reached on January 21, 1995, and his 300th in 2005.
