Rutgers women's head coach C. Vivian Stringer made history Tuesday night.
Stringer, 70, became the sixth Division I college head coach to win 1,000 career games with a 73-44 victory over Central Connecticut State.
The Naismith Hall of Fame also became the first African-American coach to achieve the feat as she improved her career record to 1,000-402 in her 47th season as a college head coach.
"I think it's special, but it's a hard thing for me to even think about," she said after the game, per NJ.com. "I've been blessed with the fact that people have trusted me to coach a team of young ladies, to give me and my staff a chance. It's far more about them than me."
Stringer joins Tennessee's Pat Summitt, UConn's Geno Auriemma, Stanford's Tara VanDerveer and North Carolina's Sylvia Hatchell. Barbara Stevens did it at the Division II level with Bentley.
Duke's Mike Krzyzewski is the only mens head coach to reach 1,000 wins.
