NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Coaches Geno Auriemma of Connecticut, Tara VanDerveer of Stanford, Muffet McGraw of Notre Dame and Brenda Frese of Maryland have all won women’s national championships.

They all hope they can coax two more victories this week to win another title.

Auriemma and VanDerveer are enshrined in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. Those two, as well as McGraw, have also been inducted into the women’s basketball Hall of Fame.

All four have been honored as the AP Coach of the Year at least once. McGraw won the award for the second consecutive time Saturday and also earned the honor in 2001.

This year’s Women’s Final Four is one of the rare times all four coaches have won national championships.

Auriemma leads the way with eight titles and has UConn on a 44-game winning streak entering Sunday’s game against Stanford. He coaches 6-foot-4 sophomore Breanna Stewart, who was voted AP player of the year Saturday.

VanDerveer has two national championships and has been to the Final Four in six of the last seven years.

Meanwhile, McGraw and Frese have won one national title apiece.
