Tuesday marked the 50th anniversary of Bob Knight's first career win. 

Before leading Indiana to three national championships, Knight was the head coach at Army, earning his first of 902 career victories. Decades later, that record would be surpassed by one of his former players, Mike Krzyzewski.

To honor the anniversary and the Hall of Fame coach, current Army head coach Zach Spiker wore a Knight-inspired sweater (Matt Norlander of CBS Sports spoke to Spiker after the game about the tribute).

The Black Knights, a contender in the Patriot League this season, picked up a 77-55 win at Bryant  on Tuesday.
