It is not too often that you get to roam the streets or work at the same place as a legend. Sitting in Coach Summit’s press conference to announce her decision to move on as Head Basketball Coach you couldn’t help but sit in awe. Am I really hearing this?

One thing you learn very quick when you come to Knoxville, is that when Coach Summit speaks you listen.  Especially if you even want to have half the coaching success that she has had.  It was mentioned by new head coach Holly Warlick in the the press conference that there were two things that Coach Summit would always stress to the team:

1.  Always put the team before yourself.

2.  Set a standard and keep it there.
