  • PISCATAWAY, N.J. (January 3, 2014) – Be one of the first 1,000 fans to the RAC on Wednesday, Feb. 26 as the Rutgers women’s basketball team takes on Temple to receive a Coach C. Vivian Stringer bobblehead.

    Now in her 19th year at Rutgers and 43rd year as a head coach overall, Stringer was the first coach in men’s or women’s basketball history to take three different schools to the Final Four (Cheyney in 1982, Iowa in 1993 and Rutgers in 2000 and again in 2007) and has compiled over 900 career victories.  She became just the seventh coach – men’s or women’s – to reach the 900-win mark and her 32 20-win seasons are second-best in women’s basketball history.

    Stringer was enshrined into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in arguably the best Hall of Fame class ever on Sept. 11, 2009. She joined fellow esteemed basketball greats Michael Jordan, David Robinson, John Stockton and Jerry Sloan on the stage at Symphony Hall to receive basketball’s ultimate honor becoming the 11th women’s coach to earn the prestigious prize.

    A 2001 inductee into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, Stringer has led her three teams to 25 appearances in the NCAA Tournament, including nine trips to the regional final. She also made her sixth appearance on a USA Basketball coaching staff in 2004, serving as an assistant coach for the gold-medal winning 2004 U.S. Olympic Team. Named one of the “101 Most Influential Minorities in Sports” by Sports Illustrated in 2003, Stringer is one of the most recognized coaches in the game.

    Other upcoming promotions include Professional Simon Sez caller Steve Max at halftime, putting a new twist on the classic kids’ game, when RU hosts SMU on Saturday, Jan. 11.   Max is known nationally for his appearances on TV shows and at NBA halftimes.  Rutgers women’s Basketball would like to invite Junior Knights to participate in the Simon Sez halftime show.  The first 50 members interested can call the ticket office at 866-445-GORU to sign up for a complimentary game ticket and participation in the halftime show.  Tickets will be available at a discounted rate for guests of participating Junior Knights members.
