Rutgers Women’s Hoops Coach Can’t Get 900th Win
Brittany Hrynko’s 3-pointer with 10.2 seconds left lifted DePaul to a 60-57 win over Rutgers, denying C. Vivian Stringer her 900th career victory Tuesday night.
Stringer was trying to become the fourth women’s coach to reach the 900-win plateau, joining Pat Summitt, Jody Conradt and Sylvia Hatchell. Stringer’s next shot will come Saturday at home against Connecticut.
With the game tied, Hrynko hit a 3 from the top of the key to give the Blue Demons the lead. Rutgers had a last chance, but Syessence Davis fell short.
Katherine Harry scored a game-high 16 points, Hrynko had 15 and Jasmine Penny added 12 for the Blue Demons (18-7, 7-4 Big East), now 4-0 at McGrath-Phillips Arena against Rutgers.
Erica Wheeler and Rachel Hollivay each had 12 points as the Scarlett Knights (14-9, 5-5) who had rallied from an 18-point second half deficit to take a late lead.
