From Sally Jenkins article in the Washington Post this morning.

"For more than two decades, I’ve been asked what Pat Summitt is really like, and failed to answer the question, for the simple reason that most words aren’t large enough to capture her. Paltry one-dimensional terms can’t describe the roiling, sparkling ocean of a person that Pat was."

Phillip Fulmer: Pat took the job here at UT when she was 22 years old. Ten years later she lead the Olympic team to a gold medal. Amazing.

50 former players made their way across the country to be with her. Wow.

This article, and Pat's letter at the end, will touch you.

A former Tennessee men’s basketball player took to Facebook on Tuesday morning to share a great story about former Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt...Brian Williams, a 6-foot-10 center from Bronx, N.Y., who played at Tennessee for Coach Bruce Pearl from 2007-2011, said one day Summitt got so fed up during a men’s practice she was watching that she took control of it.

“We was goofing around and Pat was watching,” Williams wrote. “She got fed up and threw the ball, and everyone stopped. She said, ‘Run sprints, and run them fast.’”

Tennessee’s players then looked at Pearl as if to suggest, "Is she serious?" “He looked back at us and walked away and sat down, and Pat ran the rest of practice,” Williams said. “I remember I threw up twice that day.”
That time Lady Vols legend Pat Summitt took over a Tennessee Vols' men's basketball practice
