Stringer has one more year on her contract after this season.
Rutgers honored former star Sue Wicks before the game. Wicks, who starred for the Scarlet Knights from 1984-88 before going on to play for the New York Liberty in the WNBA, will be inducted into the women’s basketball Hall of Fame in June. Wicks’ jersey is retired in the rafters and a banner commemorating her upcoming induction into the Hall of Fame hung next to it.
This was also the Play4Kay game with UConn and Rutgers honoring former North Carolina State coach Kay Yow, who passed away in 2009 after a long battle with cancer. The Scarlet Knights wore pink uniforms while the Huskies wore pink socks and had the color trimmed on their shorts.
