  • Summitt on top of hoops world

    You never forget when you cross paths with greatness. The thought crossed my mind earlier this week when I heard Hall of Fame Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt was retiring.
    Last August, Summitt announced she had been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s-type dementia. Her illness and health led to her decision, but she will remain close to the program as head coach emeritus.
    Coach Summitt made her announcement Wednesday, April 18, which rekindled memories of another mid-April date some years back.
