Rutgers Scarlet Knights women’s basketball head C. Vivian Stringer picked up her 1,000th career win on Tuesday night. The Scarlet Knights defeated the Central Connecticut State Blue Devils, 73-44, at the Rutgers Athletic Center in Piscataway, New Jersey.

She is now one of six college basketball coaches, who have 1,000 games in their career. She joins active coaches Tara VanDerveer at Stanford, Geno Auriemma at Connecticut and Sylvia Hatchell at North Carolina. The late Pat Summit also accomplished this feat at Tennessee.

Barbara Stevens also reached the mark at Division II Bentley. Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski is the one coach to do it in men’s college basketball.
