4. Geno Auriemma’s nine championships at the University of Connecticut make him the most successful postseason coach in the history of NCAA D-I women’s basketball. He’s no scrub in the regular season, either. Auriemma led the Huskies to back-to-back perfect seasons in 2008-09 and 2009-10, shattering the NCAA’s record for longest winning streak in the process with 90 consecutive victories.
