Tiger Woods sent congratulatory messages to Stanford’s women’s basketball team on Sunday night after Cardinal snapped a 29-year drought against Arizona.
Stanford beat Arizona, 54-53, to win their first women’s basketball championship since 1992. It was the third title and third for coach Tara Van Derveer’s team.

Woods, a Stanford graduate, tweeted his congratulatory message as he recovered from injuries sustained in a horrific car crash in February.
“Congratulations to the entire @StanfordWBB team and to coach VanDerveer. What a victory. Home to the champions! Cards!”
Woods attended Stanford in 1994 after Cardinal won the NCAA Championship. He will defend his amateur title in the United States in 1995 and will be named Pac-10 Player of the Year for the NCAA First-Team All-American. In 1996, he was the first golfer to win three consecutive U.S. amateur titles and win the NCAA Individual Golf Championship.

Woods is recovering from leg injuries sustained in an accident while driving his jeep in California.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office said the cause of the crash had been determined, but the report would not be released, citing privacy concerns.
“The cause has been determined, the investigation is over,” LA Sheriff Alex Villanueva said last week. He added that investigators needed permission from Woods to disseminate the information.

“We contacted Tiger Woods and his staff,” Villanueva continued. “There are some privacy issues with the publication of information about the investigation, so we will ask them if they are giving up confidentiality and then we can make a full statement about all the information about the incident.”
Woods is not facing criminal charges.
