Pat Summitt, champion for women & winningest D-I hoops coach, has died – Sports Illustrated
Imagine the indignity: You play 40 minutes to a standstill and, in the sacred compact of sports, now face overtime—yet because your game is a prelim to a men’s game, you’re forced to play OT with a running clock lest the tip-off to the main event be delayed. That’s what happened to Pat Summitt’s Tennessee Lady Vols at LSU in 1979.
