Photos: Pat Summitt through the years

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — With an icy glare on the sidelines, Pat Summitt led the Lady Vols to eight national championships and prominence on a campus steeped in the traditions of the football-rich south until she retired in 2012.

Summitt, who died Tuesday at the age of 64, helped grow college women’s basketball as her Lady Vols dominated the sport in the late 1980s and 1990s, winning six titles in 12 years. Tennessee — the only school she coached — won NCAA titles in 1987, 1989, 1991, 1996-98 and 2007-08.

Summitt had a career record of 1,098-208 in 38 seasons, plus 18 NCAA Final Four appearances.
