I'm enjoying reading what others have been saying about our Vol hero. Post your favorites here.

"She outworked her rivals ... and became a role model to millions of Americansincluding our two daughters." President Obama on Pat Summitt

"Coach @patsummitt was an all time great w/ a brilliant mind, a love of basketball and a deep loyalty to all around her. She will be missed." - Billie Jean King
She can never be replaced. She was a class act on and off the court.

From Coach Kellie Jolly Harper:

"Everybody knows Pat as this fiery, icy-glared woman. That's 100 percent true, but she also had this caring, loving, genuine side that not everybody got see."

Harper experienced great highs as a player, winning three national championships from 1996-1998. Her senior year, she was an All-American honorable mention, but the Lady Vols' bid for a four-peat was stopped in the Elite Eight.

"I was leaving the locker room, I saw her cry for the first time in my life and the only time. She didn't know I saw her, and I was 100 percent confident she was crying because of her players.

"She wasn't crying for herself or the program, but for me. It takes your admiration [to] another level."
