Former women's basketball players at Tennessee are getting calls today that Vols coach Pat Summitt, 59, has been diagnosed with dementia.
An announcement is expected later today, CBSSports.com has learned. Former players are flying into Knoxville, Tenn., from all over the world to be there for Summitt -- who will try to coach this season, according to a former player.
Summitt is the arguably the most successful coach in U.S. college basketball history -- male or female, pro or amateur -- with 1,071 career victories, eight national championships and an Olympic gold medal. She was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2000.
