Termed the greatest program builder in the history of college basketball after winning more than a hundred games at four different Division I schools, all of which had fallen on hard times or never enjoyed hoops success, Charles "Lefty" Driesell was a transcendent figure in his sport for more than forty years. Despite never coaching at one of the college game's traditional powers, and despite losing two seasons in the middle of his career due to the tragic actions of another, Driesell still ended his career as the fourth "winningest" college coach at the time he retired in 2003 with 786 victories, coaching at Davidson, Maryland, James Madison, and Georgia State.
