Stringer reached the plateau with the Scarlet Knights' 60-46 win over DePaul Wednesday.
She joined Tennessee's Pat Summitt, who is nearing the 950-win mark, and Jody Conradt, who retired as Texas coach last year after winning her 900th game, as the only women's coaches to win at least 800 games.
Stringer's overall record is 800-264.
"It's really not the number, I don't mean to dampen anyone's excitement because I really am proud, but it's not something I thought about," Stringer said.
"I don't remember a lot of milestones, I just appreciate that I have the opportunity to do something that few people can do, and that is to work with young people that affect their lives and to feel success every day."
