Stanford Women's Basketball is Your National Champions!

For the first time, since 1992, Tara VanDerveer and the Stanford Women's Basketball won the National Championship!

You can almost call it the COVID bowl, as Stanford wasn't necessarily the best time, but they were the most resilient, and had a deeper bench then familiar foe and fellow Pac-12 school, Arizona in the finals. Much was made about their "nomad" season as they couldn't practice or play in Santa Clara County due to the restrictions and had to become road warriors living out of suitcases. So much so, that the Stanford faithful loving joked they should take a drink every time the networks mentioned they plight.
