  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – Rutgers head women’s basketball coach C. Vivian Stringer will receive the Black Coaches Association Lifetime Achievement Award at the group’s annual convention June 4-5 in Indianapolis, IN.

    Stringer has compiled a 175-104 record in her nine seasons at Rutgers, and a 695-239 mark in her 32 seasons as a head coach. A 2001 inductee into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, she is the only coach, men’s or women’s, to lead three different schools to the NCAA Tournament Final Four (Cheyney in 1982, Iowa in 1993 and Rutgers in 2000), and she has three times been named the National Coach of the Year. In her nine seasons at Rutgers, the Scarlet Knights have advanced to six NCAA Tournaments, including this season’s No. 7 seed in the Midwest Region. She will serve as an assistant coach with the U.S. Olympic Team at this summer’s Games in Athens, Greece.

    Stringer, who owns the fourth-highest victory total in women’s basketball history, was named the BCA Women’s National Coach of the Year in both 1993 and 1998.

    Stringer and the other award winners will be honored at the BCA Awards Banquet on Saturday, June 5, from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. and the third-annual Images of Excellence Luncheon on Friday, June 4, from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. Both events are open to the public.
