Summitt's year-by-year résumé

3/18/2005

No women's college basketball coach has more wins than Pat Summitt. For that matter, no coach in college basketball history -- including men's hoops -- will have won more games if Summitt and Tennessee have their way Sunday against Western Carolina in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Summitt can tie Dean Smith's record-879 victories with a win Sunday, and break the mark Tuesday in a potential second-round match against either New Mexico or Purdue. Summitt's Lady Vols have never lost in the first two rounds, where they're a combined 34-0.

In 31 seasons, Summitt has guided the Lady Vols to six NCAA championships, 24 SEC regular-season and conference touranment titles, and 14 seasons with at least 30 wins, while producing 18 Kodak All-Americans and 12 Olympians.

And every season, beginning with Summitt's first in 1974 when she was just 22, has produced something special and significant. Not many résumés can stand up to the Tennessee coach's lengthy list of accolades, and it's no wonder they call her the Wizard of Knoxville.
