PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) As the red and white confetti rained down on the court to celebrate C. Vivian Stringer's 1,000th career victory, the Hall of Fame coach took a moment to soak it all in.

She was surrounded by family, friends, former players and coaches from all three schools where she coached.

"Let me tell you something, sometimes people ask how did I accomplish these things?" Stringer said. "This was only done with my family first of all and they mean everything in the world. They lifted me up."
