Zinn reaches 500 career wins; Hines joins brother in 2,000 point club

ANADARKO — Jeff Zinn is an ambitious man, but the Anadarko girls basketball coach never envisioned reaching 500 career wins.

Zinn had no reason to believe a .672 winning percentage, an average of 20 wins per season and even a state championship in 2012 would come his way, particularly after his first team at Blanchard during the 1993-94 season mustered only four wins.

But 25 years later, Zinn surpassed the half-century mark in wins, picking up his 500th career coaching victory on Thursday in the quarterfinals of the Heart of Oklahoma Tournament in Purcell.
