Dip Metress reaches 300 wins in Augusta

Now in his 14th season as head coach of the Augusta University men’s basketball team, Dip Metress got his 300th career win with the Jaguars on Tuesday, Dec. 19, in an 86-72 victory over North Georgia in Christenberry Fieldhouse.

He currently has a 300-112 (.728) record with the Jags and sports a 434-205 (.679) overall record in his 22nd season as a head coach. Metress has never had a losing season in Augusta and has reached the NCAA Tournament eight times – including hosting the NCAA Regional five years in a row and a trip to the National Championship game.

A two-time Peach Belt Conference Coach of the Year, Metress led five squads to a PBC Championship and he won the PBC Tournament twice.

Metress, a former assistant coach to AU Director of Athletics Clint Bryant, returned to Augusta following a highly successful, eight-year stint as head men’s basketball coach at Belmont Abbey College in Belmont, N.C. During his tenure, Metress guided his alma mater to a 134-103 (.565) record, including a 117-66 (.639) mark over his last six years.
