U.S. Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn., today congratulated legendary University of Tennessee Lady Vols basketball coach Pat Summitt on being named Sports Illustrated’s Sportswoman of the Year.
“Today I join all Tennesseans in congratulating Coach Summitt on this well-deserved honor,” said Corker. “As the winningest coach in NCAA basketball history, Pat Summitt’s name is synonymous with women’s basketball, yet her impact off the court might be even more impressive. We are all tremendously proud of the contributions she has made to the University of Tennessee, to the game of basketball, and, most importantly, to the young women she has coached over the years, preparing them for success both on the court and in life.”
