My love for college basketball prompted me to read this memoir by Pat Summitt, coach of the University of Tennessee Lady Vols for 4 decades. Born in 1952, a country girl from Tennessee, Pat grew up playing basketball with her brothers & working in the tobacco fields. After winning an Olympic medal on the women’s basketball team she was hired at age 22 to become the head coach of the Lady Vols & later went on to set all-time records for victories. This story is not one of basketball minutia, but rather one of an extraordinary coach, the players she loved and her fight against early onset Alzheimer’s. 5 stars.
