Hundreds show up for Pat Summitt's signature

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Nearly 300 people showed up to Knoxville's Barnes and Noble to meet former Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt and to get the first grab at her new book "Sum it Up."

The book was sold out long before Summitt even showed up and a second line formed just to secure copies.

The book is Summitt's memoir of her life spanning from childhood, through her legendary coaching career, all the way to her foundation formed to raise money for Alzheimers.
