Tara VanDerveer

STANFORD, Calif. – Stanford now plays on Tara VanDerveer Court.

The school is naming the court at Maples Pavilion after the Hall of Fame coach who retired in April as college basketball’s winningest coach. An unveiling and celebration of the field will take place during a home game in November.

In addition, the 70-year-old VanDerveer will be honored by having her name linked to one of the assistant coaching positions. The position of “Tara VanDerveer Assistant Women’s Basketball Coach” was made possible by a gift from longtime Stanford supporters Tashia and John Morgridge.

VanDerveer had already completed her last day at the Cardinal. She leaves with 1,216 career wins over 45 years at Idaho, Ohio State and Stanford.

Her Stanford teams won NCAA titles in 1990, ’92 and 2021 and reached the Final Four 14 times.
