Men’s Basketball: Maczko Wins 300th, 200th as Panthers’ Head Coach

BALTIMORE -- Baltimore City head men's basketball coach Terry Maczko accomplished two milestones in November, winning his 200th game at the helm of the Panthers and picking up career win number 300.

On November 21, the Panthers hit the road to face the previously undefeated Allegany Trojans. The 90-84 victory gave Maczko win No. 200 at Baltimore City.

The Panthers defeated College of Southern Maryland 83-74 one week later to hand Maczko his 300th career coaching victory.

Prior to coming to Baltimore City, Maczko picked up 99 wins at the Community College of Baltimore County Essex. 

"I have been blessed and very fortunate to lead [CCBC] Essex and the Baltimore City Community College programs for what is now my 12th season," Maczko said. "To reach 300 wins overall and 200 here at Baltimore City is a testament to the great assistant coaches and the talented student athletes I have had the privilege to work with and coach over the years." 

Maczko, who is also the associate athletic director, took over the Panthers' reins August 2006 and after a couple years of transitioning the program, he has not looked back. 

Since the 2009-2010 season, the Panther have averaged over 20 wins a season, while taking home four conference regular season and conference tournament championships. They also have won three NJCAA Region XX titles. 

Maczko has coached eight NJCAA All-Americans and has sent nearly 50 student athletes on to four-year institutions.  This season alone, he has 11 former student athletes playing at the next level. 

He led Baltimore City's transition from Division II to Division I after the 2012 season, where the Panthers finished #6 in the country.
