The 55-year-old Summitt, who won her seventh NCAA championship
this past season, had a dizzy spell and fainted at her home on
Thursday. She was taken to St. Mary's Hospital for treatment for
dehydration and spent the night for observation.

"She is at home and will be resuming normal activities
immediately," Lady Vols spokeswoman Debby Jennings said.

There was hardly enough time for well-wishers to send flowers.
"Exactly," Jennings said.

Jennings said
running several summer basketball camps in gyms without
air-conditioning probably contributed to Summitt's collapse. The coach had just finished up one five-day camp and
was getting ready to start another this weekend.

Summitt is the winningest basketball coach in NCAA history with
947 victories.
