Pat Summitt is as iconic as they come in any sport. The winningest coach in college basketball, developed the Tennessee Women’s program into a perennial force almost single handed. UT was averaging over ten thousand fans at their women’s basketball games, when other ranked were programs were happy to have two or three thousand.

One of those programs was the University of Louisville, and when U of L needed to make a statement at their first game in the Yum! center, Jeff Walz invited coach Summitt to do just that. Take a listen to the impact Pat Summitt had on college basketball and the impact she had on Jeff Walz.
