Tara VanDerveer Heads To Hall Of Fame As Stanford Women's Basketball Coach

Tara VanDerveer has done an impressive job of putting the Stanford women's basketball team on the map since arriving at the school in 1985. VanDerveer's induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame goes to show just how well she's done in that regard as the coach is still actively pacing the Cardinal sidelines.  

VanDerveer's basketball experience began as a standout guard for Indiana , but just three years after leaving the college of the Hoosiers, her coaching career began when she was named head coach of the Idaho Vandals in the summer of 1978. VanDerveer's been standing out ever since.

In a career that's spanned 23 seasons and four teams -- the Vandals, Ohio State, Stanford and the 1996 Olympics entry for Team USA  -- VanDerveer has won two NCAA championships, an Olympic gold medal and is a ten-time winner of the Pac-12 Coach of the Year award. VanDerveer is also one of just six NCAA Women's coaches to win at least 800 games over the course of her career.
