In the cutthroat world of big-time college athletics, University of Minnesota women's basketball coach Marlene Stollings is a winner. Before equaling the second-highest number of regular-season wins (22) in program history, Stollings turned Virginia Commonwealth's program from wannabe to player. At the U, Stollings inherited a program that had been treading water for more than a decade. Her first year in the Twin Cities has brought nothing short of a wholesale culture change. Despite her team's early exit from this year's NCAA tournament, Stollings's new high-tempo offense has resulted in a more entertaining brand of basketball and a program fast on the rise.
