It has been quite a week for Black Hawk College men's basketball coach Darren Bizarri.

His Braves won twice this week, upping their season-high winning streak to four that evened theiroverall record at 11-11 as they moved to 4-2 in Arrowhead Conference play. On top of that, theprogram received a visit from the infamous "Piggyback Bandit'' on Tuesday.

Turns out, those were mere side notes to the biggest news of the week for the BHC coach.

Thursday's 80-77 victory over Illinois Valley was his 100th as BHC coach.

Bizarri, who is in his sixth season at BHC, didn't even know it until Friday morning when he said former assistant coach David Burke called to congratulate him.

"Piggyback Bandit and 100th win in one week,'' joked Bizarri. "Only in JUCO basketball.''
