Ray West posted his 700th boys basketball coaching victory when Okarche (Okla.) defeated Amber-Pocasset (Amber, Okla.), 62-42.

West, who also has coached at six other schools, has recorded over 400 of his victories at Okarche. He has guided the Warriors to a state-tournament berth in five of the last six campaigns.

In his 38th season as a basketball coach, West has 316 losses.

The veteran coach told The Oklahoman, "When it stops being fun, I'll probably quit. But I'm enjoying it still. I don't golf and I don't fish, so I think I'd be bored to death if I wasn't coaching."
