How do you get to 900 wins?

‘There are a lot of different ways to get the milk in the jug’
Despite a down year and the pressure of producing victories on a $1-million contract, Rutgers head coach C. Vivian Stringer is one win shy of 900 for her career, a rare club with just three members.
North Carolina coach Sylvia Hatchell and associate head coach Andrew Calder had a fit of unhappiness on the bench, but look at the bigger picture, and Hatchell has 900 reasons (victories) to be happy.
No. 3 UConn denies Stringer No. 900

PISCATAWAY, N.J. – Morgan Tuck scored 15 points, and Stefanie Dolson added 14 to help No. 3 Connecticut beat Rutgers 65-45 on Saturday, denying coach C. Vivian Stringer of her 900th victory.

Stringer won No. 899 last Saturday against Cincinnati and has lost her first two attempts to become the fourth women’s basketball coach to reach the milestone. The Hall of Fame coach was looking to join Pat Summitt, Jody Conradt and Sylvia Hatchell, who reached the mark last week.

Stringer’s next try will be Tuesday at No. 23 Syracuse.

UConn (24-1, 11-1 Big East) will return home to face top-ranked Baylor on Monday night in a showdown of two teams with national championships hopes.

It wasn’t long ago that Rutgers (14-10, 5-6 Big East) was a thorn in the side of Connecticut, going 5-4 against the Huskies from 2005 to 2008. That’s not the case anymore, however, as the Huskies have won the last 10 meetings.

For 10 minutes, the Scarlet Knights took it right at the Huskies. Rutgers led 14-4 nearly 5 minutes in as UConn coach Geno Auriemma pulled four of his five starters, unhappy with their play as it looked as if the Huskies already were looking ahead to the showdown with Baylor.

UConn scored seven of the final nine points of the half to lead 33-27, then picked right up in the second half scoring the first seven points to take a 40-27 lead and put the game away. Rutgers only could get within nine the rest of the way.
