Sum It Up by Pat Summitt

Sum It Up

Reviewed by Terry Zignego (Library Staff)

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.
