Bootleg Video: Tara VanDerveer on Sweet 16

Heading into today's highly publicized Sweet 16 matchup for #3-seeded Stanford vs. #2-seeded Oklahoma, Cardinal head coach Tara VanDerveer has plenty on her mind. She talks about why Sooners freshman Courtney Paris is so good, how the Cardinal may try to match up, the progress and importance of her own freshmen, and much more...

Not only is there the Bay Area connection, but the dominating figure for Stanford to face today in San Antonio is Oklahoma's freshman center Courtney Paris.  VanDerveer gives a scouting report on the elite post player, and what she does to change the game on both ends of the floor.  The 20-year Cardinal head coach also breaks down the Cardinal keys to the game, talks in-depth about her own freshman factors in Rosalyn Gold-Onwude and Jillian Harmon, discusses Brooke Smith's importance and matchups, comments on the historical magnitude game and the Paris vs. Wiggins star factor... and more.
