The win was Bartley's 624 and surpassed former Claflin University head coach, the late Nelson Brownlee, for the top spot as verified by the Black College Sports Encyclopedia.

All of Bartley's victories have been at FVSU during nearly three decades.

“While any coach would be happy with breaking a record of this magnitude, said Bartley, what I am most happy about is the notoriety such an accomplishment brings to FVSU.  I am grateful to this school for giving me the chance to become a head coach and for its unwavering commitment to the women’s basketball program. I also want to thank every player who has played for me over my 29 years as coach.  Each of these players has a played a role in the success of the program.”
