Bootleg Video: Charmin Smith

Our heart sings when a Stanford alumna comes home, as is the case with second-year women's basketball assistant coach Charmin Smith. While she played in Maples Pavilion, the Class of '97 grad went to three Final Fours. She sits down with us to talk about a 2005-06 squad that could reach that level. Smith also fills us in on her Katrina Assist Pledge Program, how Tara VanDerveer has changed, and much more.

When we sit down with a Stanford coach, we dig into questions about the team, players and season prospects.  We did that in depth with women's basketball assistant coach Charmin Smith this week, but the Class of '97 grad also has the added dimension of her own story.  Find out about the circumstances and excitement that surrounded her return to The Farm, as well as the unique context her background affords her as a coach and recruiter.  Smith also launched the Katrina Assist Pledge Program this week, where fans can help the victims of that devastation by betting on the Stanford statistics log.  The second-year Cardinal coach covers a wide range of topics with The Bootleg in this engaging and information-filled interview.
