    Default Nice article out of Connecticut on Pat Summit.

    Just thought I would share as UConn fans everywhere are thinking of Coach Summit.

    Kara Lawson, now living in Ct, gives great insight into a woman who is much more than just a HOF coach.

    Thanks for the article. I have some family connections to Pat Summit. My dad went to high school with her older brother in Clarksville, and my dad's brother married one of her cousins. I only met her once, and that was a book signing back in 1996.

    I have a ton of respect for her and her accomplishments at UT. She changed high school girls basketball in Tennessee to standard 5-5 instead of the limiting 6-6 game that was played previously. Many of her players have gone on to coaching. And she just wins (which has been sometimes frustrating as a Vandy fan).

    Other programs have caught up to UT, but her influence has made women's basketball so much better over the years. I really have no clue what she is and will be going through, but my prayers are with her and her family.
    Go Titans! Go Braves! Go Preds! Go Dores!

    You can't talk about great coaches without including Pat Summit.
