C. Vivian Stringer’s bid to become the fourth women’s college basketball coach with 900 wins was thwarted last night when her Rutgers Scarlet Knights lost 60-57 at DePaul in a Big East conference game.
Rutgers (14-9, 5-5 Big East) rallied from a 16-point halftime deficit to tie the game in the closing minute of the second half. Brittany Hrynko then made a 3-pointer with 10 seconds left to give DePaul (18-7, 7-4) the victory and end the Scarlet Knights’ three-game winning streak.
The next chance at 900 wins for Stringer, a member of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, will come Feb. 16 when Rutgers hosts third-ranked Connecticut.
