Rutgers Team Accepts Apology

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) -- Apology accepted.

That's the word from the Rutgers women's basketball coach, concerning the team's meeting with Don Imus late yesterday.

Coach Vivian Stringer says the team still finds the former talk show host's racist remarks unacceptable. However, she says her players are in the "process of forgiving."

Imus met with the team for three hours last night. The meeting took place shortly after word came down that he'd been fired by C-B-S.

Reading from a team statement, Stringer goes on to call the incident an experience that the team will never forget. Also, she says his comments are "indicative of greater ills" in the culture.

She calls for continued efforts to "make this world a better place."
