PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) C. Vivian Stringer is back with a new outlook on life after stepping away at the end of last season because of exhaustion.

Rutgers' Hall of Fame women's basketball coach said doctors told her last February that she ought to rest. She listened, missing the end of the Scarlet Knights' season that finished with a loss to Buffalo in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.

"I was tired and beat up. Not going to reveal what the issue was, but the doctor said, `Stop, you can't go anymore.' In a way I knew that I had done everything I could," Stringer said Wednesday. "I couldn't do any more. Glad that I was given an opportunity to take the break that I needed and relax and come back."
