Synopsis by Ed Atkinson

Sit in the bleachers or get on the court -- either way, you need to keep your eyes on the ball as legendary women's collegiate basketball coach Tara Vanderveer generously passes her supreme knowledge of the game to any and all willing to listen. Vanderveer is a highly-awarded coach and player. After playing as a starting guard for the University of Indiana and obtaining a master's degree from Ohio State, she moved into the ranks of coaching. She bounced her way through the ranks, netting several league championships until finally settling at Stanford University. While at Stanford, Vanderveer has grabbed a national championship and several coach of the year awards. She also led the U.S. Women's National and Olympic teams to a combined 60-0 record and several gold medals. To say the least, Vanderveer is one of the all-time best coaches. This is the very reason why you should take her advice and pay close attention to her strategies. Any aspiring coach or inspired player should look into the wisdom of the game that Vanderveer so eagerly dishes out. Catch the pass and make the shot.
