It is the second time that VanDerveer has earned the Naismith honor. She previously collected the award after leading Stanford to its first national title in 1990.

“I am very honored to receive this award from the Atlanta Tip-Off Club, VanDerveer said. I am very fortunate to get to work with such a talented and dedicated group of coaches and players day in and day out, which is the foundation of our program’s success.”

VanDerveer, was elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as a member of the Hall’s Class of 2011, has also collected the coach of the year honor from the WBCA and The Associated Press.

The Cardinal went 33-2 this season, ending UConn’s 90-game winning streak December 30 and advancing to the NCAA Final Four before losing to eventual champion Texas A&M.
