UConn's Reid earns 300th win with emphatic victory

Ray Reid became the fourth Division I men's coach to pick up his 300th win since the start of the 2007 season when Connecticut beat St. John's, 3-0, Friday in a Big east match that drew a crowd of 5,116 fans at Morrone Stadium.

Ryan Cordeiro scored two goals and Jamaica international Akeem Priestley added the third for UConn in the win over the Red Storm.

Two days later, the Huskies downed Syracuse, 1-0, on a goal by All-American defender Julius James set up by Mike Pezza, the NCAA Division I assist leader with nine assists. The Sunday afternoon game in Storrs drew 4,263 fans.

In 18 years as a collegiate head coach, Reid has amassed a record of 301-74-32, making him Division I's winningest active coach based on percentage. Reid spent his first eight seasons of his career at his alma mater, Division II Southern Connecticut State, where he compiled a 146-17-15  record before moving to UConn in 1997, where he presently holds a 155-57-17 mark.

Joe Baum (Michigan State), Dave Masur (St. John's) and Rich Posipanko (Winthrop) have all picked their 300th career win this fall.
