    Something like that is scarier to me than a heart attack or cancer

    So sad, I always had a feeling the only thing holding her back from being the Joe Paterno of Womens College Basketball is sickness or death. I think she could have coached forever.

    Though I'd never wish this on another, perhaps it will help bring attention to the possibility that illnesses and other health conditions can -- and do -- happen to anyone. It becomes so personal when it happens to someone we know.

    Agreed. She's only 59. Barring something like this, I would have expected her to go at least 15 more years.

    Wow, that is not good news. Dementia can take over so quickly.

    So disappointing. In reading the article - I had two thoughts: 1) I was struck by the maturity and thoughtfulness of her son's responses, and 2) My general impression is that earlier onsets of this disease are generally accompanied by faster progression.

    Hopefully - medical advances will keep her coaching for awhile.

    Re: WBB: Pat Summitt diagnosed with dementia

    This is sad news. My grandfather developed dementia in his later years, and although the last time I saw him in person was in 2003 (he died in '08) I could tell he definitely wasn't the same, and it was hard to see a once strong man who did very well for himself while healthy slowly disintegrate.

    Best wishes to Coach Summit, her family, and the whole Volunteer family.

    Unfortunately, this is very true.

    terrible news for her and her family.



    that being said - can't imagine the negative recruiting she and her program will face.

    Horrible news. Just goes to show that no one is protected from the frailty of the human body.

    While I am sure recruits will take into account the fact that she may not be there, I believe the coaching community in women's basketball will not stoop so low as to actually use this as a pitch to prospective talent. Scott Drew does not coach women's basketball.
