Roy Williams honored late Pat Summitt during game at Tennessee

Roy Williams

Roy Williams paid respect to the late Pat Summitt while coaching at Tennessee on Sunday.

Williams’ North Carolina Tar Heels beat the Vols 78-73 Sunday at Thompson-Boling Arena. The court inside the arena is named “The Summitt” after Pat, who died last year. At halftime, Williams says he went over and gave a pat to the floor as a way of honoring Summitt.

Williams also noted that he had taken his daughter to one of Summitt’s camps.

Along with Geno Auriemma, Summitt is regarded as one of the greatest women’s basketball coaches in history. She won eight national championships and seven NCAA Coach of the Year awards. Summitt was diagnosed in 2011 with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. She died five years later.
