Tara VanDerveer (born June 26, 1953) has been the Stanford University women's basketball coach since 1985. She led the Stanford Cardinal to two NCAA Women's Division I Basketball Championships: in 1990 and 1992.[1] She stepped away from the Stanford program for a year to serve as the U.S. national team head coach at the 1996 Olympic Games.[1] VanDerveer is the 1990 Naismith National Coach of the Year and a ten-time Pac-12 Coach of the Year. She is also one of only six NCAA Women's Basketball coaches to win at least 800 games.

VanDerveer was a standout player at Indiana University, and later coached at the Ohio State University. VanDerveer is also an avid piano player. Her sister Heidi VanDerveer, who coached for several years with the WNBA's Minnesota Lynx and Seattle Storm, now coaches at Occidental College in Los Angeles.

Vanderveer's Olympic team was considered one of the best ever assembled, and complied an 80–0 record over the course of the year, culminating in a gold medal at the Olympics in Atlanta.[1]

VanDerveer was awarded the US Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) Coach of the Year award in 1990.[2]

VanDerveer was awarded the Amos Alonzo Stagg Coaching Award by the United States Sports Academy in 1995.

In 2002, VanDerveer was elected to the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame, located in Knoxville, Tennessee.[3]

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
