Jesuit basketball coach Neal Goldman achieved a milestone Tuesday (Jan. 6), winning his 500th game as the Tigers' head coach.
Goldman is believed to be just the seventh boys basketball coach in Hillsborough County to reach the mark. He has spent his entire coaching career at Jesuit, the past 28 as head coach, compiling a record of 500-260, which includes a 31-1 mark in 2012-13 when the Tigers captured the Class 5A state championship.
Tuesday at District rival Robinson, Jesuit (12-5) earned a hard-fought 48-43 victory. Two free throws by Daniel Darst ’15 with 13 seconds remaining gave Jesuit a 4-point lead and clinched the win. Christian Whidden '15 led the Tigers with 21 points.
Next up for the Tigers is rival Tampa Catholic on Friday at 7:00pm in the Tiger Palace. The game will be broadcast live on Bright House Sports Network.
