Rutgers Women’s Basketball team will hit the floor at the RAC with lots of new faces and some returning favorites for the 2018-19 season. RU opens at home against St. Francis of PA on November 6 and continues at the RAC for a Nov. 9 game vs. Stony Brook and a Nov. 12 game against Central Connecticut State. Hall of Fame Head Coach C. Vivian Stringer needs just 3 wins to reach the milestone of 1000 in her career, so be at the Nov. 12 contest just in case. You can get a sneak preview of this year's team, along with the men's team, on October 12 at MidKnight Madness at the College Avenue Gym ("the Barn"). Details will be announced.

As always, the Cagers will be there to cheer on our favorite team – at home AND on the road. The team reminds us how much they appreciate their fans and feel energized by our support.
Looking back to 2017-18, RU completed its season 20-12 overall and 7-9 in B1G 10 play, beating Purdue in the 2nd round of the B!G 10 Tournament before losing to eventual champion Ohio State in the quarter finals. The team was not invited to the NCAA Tournament despite success against several Tournament teams, and RU declined to participate in the WNIT, which it won in 2014. With play ended, the Cagers look back on the team's vastly improved record - 14 more wins this season than in the previous campaign - and look forward to welcoming the 2018-19 squad in the fall. Stay tuned!
Here are some Cager highlights: Following our last Huddle of the season, we watched as Rutgers honored departing seniors Kathleen Fitzpatrick, Nigia Green, Jazlyn Rollins and Tyler Scaife prior to the Iowa game. Special framed jerseys were presented to the players and framed photos of the senior managers with Coach C. Vivian Stringer were also presented by the Cagers Club.
