KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Former Tennessee coach Pat Summitt already had the Thompson-Boling Arena court named after her. Now she also has a banner hanging from the rafters in her honor.
Tennessee unveiled the banner Monday before the ninth-ranked Lady Vols' game with No. 2 Notre Dame.
Summitt waved to the crowd as she walked onto the floor for the pregame ceremony. Tennessee's coaching staff joined current and former Lady Vols in gathering around Summitt in front of the banner before it was raised to the rafters.
Summitt stepped down in April after leading Tennessee to eight national titles and 18 Final Four appearances in 38 seasons. She announced in 2011 that she has early-onset dementia, Alzheimer's type.
Summitt remains on staff as head coach emeritus.
