  • ATHENS, GREECE – Rutgers women’s basketball head coach C. Vivian Stringer and the 2004 U.S. Women’s Basketball Olympic Team defeated China 100-62 Aug. 22, finishing preliminary play with a perfect 5-0 record. Stringer is serving as an assistant coach for the two-time defending gold medalist U.S. team.

    The Americans jumped out early to a 27-13 lead. Defense (27 turnovers forced) and their best shooting effort of the Games (44-85, 52 percent) helped the Americans to the easy victory. Diana Taurasi led the U.S. with 19 points.

    The U.S. will next play Greece Wednesday, Aug. 25, in the medal quarterfinals.

    Stringer, who will begin her 33rd season on the college sidelines this fall, owns the fourth-highest victory total in women’s college basketball history (695-239), including a 175-104 mark in her nine seasons at Rutgers. A member of the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, the three-time national coach of the year remains 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).
