Rutgers coach wins 900th

Stringer fourth woman to do it

– C. Vivian Stringer became the fourth women’s college basketball coach to reach 900 wins as Rutgers cruised past South Florida 68-56 on Tuesday night.

Stringer, a Hall of Famer in her 42nd season as head coach, reached the milestone thanks to Erica Wheeler, who scored 24 points to help the Scarlet Knights (15-12, 6-8 Big East) snap a four-game losing streak.

Stringer joined Pat Summitt, Jody Conradt and Sylvia Hatchell, who reached the mark on Feb. 7. Only three Division I men’s coaches have reached 900 victories – Mike Krzyzewski, Bob Knight and Jim Boeheim.

“I am fortunate to call Vivian my friend and could not be happier that she has reached the 900-win milestone in her career. I have great respect and admiration for Vivian and consider her one of the great pioneers of our game,” Summitt said in a statement.

“She has had an incredible journey, and I hope she adds many more to her ‘W’ column!”

As the game ended, a crowd of 1,304 at the Rutgers Athletic Center saluted Stringer with chants of “900” and “C.V.S.” and Scarlet Knights Athletic Director Tim Pernetti was among the first to greet her with a congratulatory banner.
