Borton picks up win No. 200 as Gopher women top Maine


University of Minnesota women's basketball coach Pam Borton won her 200th game with the Gophers Sunday, a 77-60 victory over Maine.

The win was not only a milestone for Borton, but earned the Gophers the Subway Classic championship at Williams Arena.

Borton, who is 200-125 in 11 seasons with the Gophers (the most wins for a coach in the program's history), told the Pioneer Press that she probably should be "more excited about it," but is already looking ahead to the next game.

Minnesota, 4-0 on the year, travels to Mexico this week to face Richmond, James Madison and Missouri in the Cancun Challenge.
