Outgoing Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott was very proud to be in San Antonio to celebrate the conference’s first NCAA women’s basketball championship since 1992. The conference was guaranteed its first title since Hall of Fame coach Tara VanDerveer and the Cardinal won their last one in 1992. Stanford captured its latest title Sunday night by beating Arizona 54-53. Scott told The Associated Press before the game that it was a very gratifying moment for the league that’s seen the rise of Pac-12 women’s basketball over the last decade. Scott credits the growth with six different schools reaching the Final Four since 2013 to the increased television coverage with the Pac-12 Network.
