700 Wins for VanDerveer as Card Run Over WSU

The Bootleg's Women's Hoops Columnist Sue Bair reviews the Cardinal's rather relaxed 105-47 Friday night romp over WSU at Maples. Too much size, too much speed for the clawless Cougs. The lopsided victory may have been business-as-usual for the #2-ranked and now 11-1 Cardinal, but it was truly historic for Stanford head coach Tara VanDerveer, who impressively logged her 700th career coaching win!

Junior Cissy Pierce started raining jumpers with ease. Is it an aberration, or has Pierce finally found the outside shot to complete her offensive game? That could also complete Stanford's offensive puzzle.
