I don’t know if its been mentioned here in the shop. But the University of Tennessee Lady Volunteer’s winning the women’s SEC basketball tournament with Pat Summit suffering from dementia is pretty significant.

Whenever I actually followed the Lady Vols this season they were always losing or irrelevant. So, I was shocked to see that they had won the South Eastern Conference Championship this weekend at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.

This is a Great Win for Pat and the University of Tennessee. This victory is even sweeter for her to win something in what is likely her final year as the head coach of the Lady Vols.This is also the 15th SEC tournament championship under Summit.

Moreover, It was a bit weird watching the game. It appeared that associate head coach, Holly Warlick, was really running things, which is very different from the past 37 years. It seemed as if Pat was just listening in.

The Lady Vols were led by the superb play of tournament MVP, Glory Johnson. She finished the game with 20 points and 10 rebounds. The 39-23 rebounding advantage was a key factor in beating the LSU Lady Tigers.
