Rings And Things

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Before tonight's game, Rutgers team members, players and coaches who were apart of last year's Final Four run will receive their NCAA Final Four rings.

Tonight also sees the official raising of the new National Finalist banner that now hangs in the RAC next to the Scarlet Knights' 2000 Final Four banner.

Stanford and Rutgers have only met three times, with the Cardinal holding a 2-1 advantage. The last time they did battle was on Nov. 22, 2002 in Palo Alto, Calif., when Stanford won 64-60. The two met on Jan. 2 in 2002 as well, with Stanford winning that one 50-46.

This game features two coaches who both rank among the Top 10 in all-time wins. Rutgers' coach C. Vivian Stringer ranks third all time with 777 wins, while Stanford's Tara VanDerveer ranks No. 8 with 690.

Yes, but how many National Championships has Stanford won?
