This is awful news.  Summitt is considered one of the greatest coaches in any sport.

Here are the details.

Former women’s basketball players at Tennessee are getting calls Tuesday that Volunteers coach Pat Summitt, 59, has been diagnosed with dementia.

An announcement is expected later in the day, has learned. Former players are flying into Knoxville, Tenn., from all over the world to be there for Summitt — who will try to coach this season, according to a former player.

Thoughts and prayers go out to Summitt and the Volunteers family.
