NEW YORK (AP) — Renowned UT Knoxville Women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt has been named Sports Illustrated's sportswoman of the year.

The Hall of Famer has won more games than any coach in women's basketball, earning her 1,075th career victory Sunday.

Summitt announced in August that she had been diagnosed with early onset dementia, but says she’ll continue coaching as long as possible.

Governor Bill Haslam among those lining up to congratulate Summitt on the award.
