WRSU marks 20th anniversary of 2000 Rutgers Women’s Basketball Final Four team with mini-documentary

Rutgers’ point guard Tasha Pointer of Chicago was one of the many talented Scarlet Knights who helped the program earn its first-ever Final Four bid in 2000.

Just five years into her tenure at Rutgers, C. Vivian Stringer had orchestrated quite the turnaround: bringing the Scarlet Knights to new heights by earning the program’s first-ever Final Four bid.

A year after a disappointing exit in the Elite Eight at the hands of eventual national champion Purdue, Shawnetta Stewart, Tasha Pointer, Linda Miles and company stunned heavy-favorite and top-seed Georgia in Portland, Oregon, to earn a trip “back home” to Philadelphia for the NCAA Final Four.

Wednesday night, on a new WRSU “From the Archives,” host Mike Pavlichko – who covered both the 1999 and 2000 postseason runs – will recap it all, including the entire second half of the West Regional Final against Georgia, as well as commentary from fellow student announcer Jason Dukes, coach C. Vivian Stringer, Tasha Pointer, Shawnetta Stewart, and then-RU beat writer Greg Tufaro of the Home News Tribune.

Tune in at 6 pm on 88.7 FM or on wrsu.org.
