Stanford's VanDerveer poised to break wins record by Summitt
So, when VanDerveer tied the late Hall of Famer as winningest women's coaches in history with 1,098 victories Sunday night, Dec. 13, 2020, she quickly credited Summitt for helping her get there. “If I tied this record with her, she helped me do it, because of playing against her teams. And consider what VanDerveer's win total could be: She took a year away from Stanford to coach the 1996 Olympic team. Her drive, consistency and passion are the foundations for success,” said Tucker, who also played for VanDerveer at Ohio State. With a young, talented team currently, VanDerveer would like nothing more than to bring home another title before she's through.
