Terrific! Who funded this? Did Tara set this up herself, or did a group of donors honor Tara by setting this up and naming it after her?

One of the disappointments in WBB over the last generation is that there are fewer women coaches today than in the early years. With all the progress in expanding TV, the fan base, creation of a viable professional league, higher salaries, increasing competitiveness--all that progress in so many areas of the sport are matched with a regression in the number of successful women head coaches. Hopefully this will help to change that.
