Congratulations to Pat Head Summitt, the coach of the University of Tennessee Lady Vols, on her record-breaking 880th career win last night. The Lady Vols got number 880 for Summitt in a NCAA Tournament game over the Purdue Boilermakers. After the game, UT renamed the basketball floor "The Summitt" in Pat's honor. This record could not happen to a better person. And Pat deserves every honor and accolade poured upon her. It's more than just numbers, but if you're interested in the staggering numbers, head over here
. As Pat kept saying, "It's about relationships" and it is. The most impressive thing is Pat has a 100% graduation rate on her team. Pat Head Summitt represents everything that is good with with college atheletics today and is one of the many reasons I am a die-hard UT fan.
But there is still business to take care of. Winning number 880 means the Lady Vols make the Sweet 16 for the 24th straight season and can continue their pursuit of a 7th national championship.
