New Brunswick, NJ — The weekend of December 2-5 I returned to New Brunswick, New Jersey with fellow MSR columnist Charles Hallman to witness the renaming of the Rutgers University basketball court named after recently retired women’s basketball coach and Hall of Famer C. Vivian Stringer.
I lived in New Brunswick during my childhood in 1968-69 and 1974-77.
In addition to witnessing history and reuniting with old friends, I did manage to take photos of Coach Stringer, current Rutgers player Kylene Smikle, and Rutgers first-year head coach Coquese Washington. I also obtained photos of former Minneapolis North High School and Rutgers point guard Mauri Horton with her college coach, and former Minneapolis North forward and St. Peter’s College standout Stacia Neals for this ‘Fab Five’ photo spread.
