CHICAGO – Brittany Hrynkos three-pointer with 10.2 seconds left lifted DePaul to a 60-57 win over Rutgers, denying C. Vivian Stringer her 900th career victory Tuesday night.
Stringer was trying to become the fourth womens coach to reach the 900-win plateau, joining Pat Summitt, Jody Conradt and Sylvia Hatchell. Stringers next shot will come Saturday at home against Connecticut.
Hrynko hit a three from the top of the key to give the Blue Demons the lead. Rutgers had a last chance, but Syessence Davis fell short.
Katherine Harry scored a game-high 16 points for the Blue Demons (18-7, 7-4 Big East).
Erica Wheeler and Rachel Hollivay each had 12 points for the Scarlett Knights (14-9, 5-5) .
