The news on Wednesday that Tennessee legend Pat Summitt was stepping down as women’s basketball coach was both heartbreaking and unsurprising. If you watched a UT women’s game this year, with the sight of Summitt sitting on the bench rather than up and coaching, you knew the end of her career was near, cut short by early-onset dementia.

The tributes and retrospectives came pouring in after the announcement.

UK coach Matthew Mitchell, who worked for Summitt at Tennessee, says the departure leaves a void.

Here’s a roundup of other Summitt stories this morning.
