Sum it Up: 1,098 Victories, a Couple of Irrelevant Losses, and a Life in Perspective
Pat Summitt learned the game of basketball against three brothers who gave no quarter. She won an Olympic medal and at twenty-two became head coach of the University of Tennessee Lady Vols. Over four decades she established Tennessee as the most elite team in the country and won more games than anyone in NCAA Division I history. The records and accolades didn't mean nearly as much to her as her coaches and players. She balanced career and marriage and motherhood. Summitt has contended with heart problems, rheumatoid arthritis, and early onset Alzheimer's disease. Sum it up is an honest look at an extraordinary life.
