Sum It Up

1,098 Victories, A Couple Of Irrelevant Losses, And A Life In Perspective

By Pat Head Summitt, 1952-

Pat Summitt was only 21 when she became head coach of the Tennessee Vols women's basketball team. For 38 years, she's broken records and made basketball history. Then in 2011 she was diagnosed with early- onset Alzheimer's disease. Despite her devastating diagnosis, Pat led the Vols to their 16th SEC championship in March 2012-- facing this new challenge the way she's faced every other: with hard work, perseverance, and a sense of humor.

Summary: 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.
