Pat Summitt, the all-time winningest coach in division one basketball history, died today at the age of 64 after a fight with early onset dementia.
Her death was announced on her website.
"On Tuesday, June 28 2016, Pat passed away peacefully, following a courageous battle with early onset dementia, “Alzheimer’s Type.” This disease attacked a lifetime of precious memories, memories that she has now won back as she rests in her eternal home. Memories that will live on in each and every relationship she developed throughout her life."
Summitt was the NCAA National Coach of the Year seven times while leading the Tennessee Volunteers to eight national championships.
There's not a basketball coach in division one history that can say they've won more games than Summitt's 1,098 career victories.
In 2012 she was given the President Medal of Freedom, the highest honor an American civilian can receive.
