The Kentucky Wildcats made history on Monday night, becoming the first team in college basketball history to win 2,000 games.

Kentucky dusted off Drexel, 88-44, to get the win. Kentucky improved to 2,000-635-1 in 107 years of basketball. North Carolina is second with 1,992 wins and Kansas is third with 1,980.

"We weren't apart of many of those 2,000 wins, but we had a job to do and that was drag us across the line before that other blue team got there," Calipari told the Associated Press.
