On the eve of the AAC Tournament, head coach C. Vivian Stringer still does not have a clear sense of if this could be it for the Rutgers women’s basketball team. The No. 24 Scarlet Knights (21-8, 12-6) were long seen as a safe bet for an at-large bid to the NCAAs, but after slipping to fourth in the AAC with a loss Monday night to South Florida, their fate is uncertain.
Head coach C. Vivian Stringer said she would feel more certain about Rutgers’ chances of making the NCAAs with an impressive win Saturday against SMU.
Sophomore wing Kahleah Copper, junior wing Betnijah Laney and junior guard Syessence Davis stared listlessly from the Louis Brown Athletic Center’s postgame podium Monday night, and no one could blame them.Since the start of conference play 65 days earlier, the Rutgers women’s basketball team consistently placed at least third in the AAC. The Scarlet Knights had paved a realistic path to the AAC title game, and an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament was all but a formality.
Shots went up, clanked off the back iron and fell into the fingertips of South Florida defenders. For nearly the first six minutes last night at the Louis Brown Athletic Center, nothing fell through the net for the Rutgers women’s basketball team. With the AAC Tournament’s third seed on the line, the nation’s 24th-ranked team hardly played like it.

STORRS, Conn. — As the game clock ticked away Saturday, the only meaningful question was if the Rutgers women’s basketball team was going to lose by more than last time against No. 1 Connecticut. Without leading scorer Kahleah Copper, who unexpectedly missed her first game of the season with turf toe, the Scarlet Knights had no answers.
Forward Rachel Hollivay struggles in the paint against No. 1 UConn’s big men.
In a season where 14 of the Rutgers women’s basketball team’s first 20 wins came by double digits, a more hard-fought 21st victory gave head coach C. Vivian Stringer a sense of how far the Scarlet Knights have come. Although No. 24 Rutgers led wire-to-wire Wednesday night, on several occasions it had to fend off a pesky Temple (12-15, 6-10) team that refused to relent.

Rutgers women’s basketball freshman Tyler Scaife earned AAC Rookie of the Week last Monday for the fifth time in six weeks. The point guard very well may be on her way to winning the award yet again.

Scaife scored in double-digits for the 21st time in 26 games this season.
Freshman guard Tyler Scaife dribbles on the open floor ahead of trailing Temple defenders at the Louis Brown Athletic Center in the Knights’ 67-58 victory last night. Scaife led all scorers with 21 points on 8-for-18 shooting.
By simple measures, a 15-point loss Sunday at No. 3 Louisville technically didn’t hurt the Rutgers women’s basketball team’s push for an NCAA Tournament bid. Despite falling to the Cardinals for a second time this season, the Scarlet Knights (20-6, 11-4) moved up one spot to No. 24 in this week’s AP Poll. LSU and St. John’s both dropped two games last week to fall out of the rankings.

What has eluded the Rutgers women’s basketball team for the last several weeks — a marquee victory — did so again yesterday in Louisville, Ky. Although the Scarlet Knights’ opportunities to play ranked opponents this season have been scarce, they failed to take advantage of a golden one at the KFC Yum! Center.
As she sat down at the podium following the Rutgers women’s basketball team’s most lopsided win of the season Saturday, C. Vivian Stringer could not help but smile. The head coach had much to be proud of: season highs of 90 points on 60-percent shooting and 23 assists, as well as a season-low six turnovers. It all came together for the Scarlet Knights with the year winding down and postseason approaching.
Sophomore wing Kahleah Copper looks to stay out of foul trouble in RU’s rematch with Louisville. She picked up three fouls in seven minutes Jan. 28 at the RAC.
