Summitt inducted into 5th Hall of Fame
Balcomb remembered her first meeting with Summitt after Balcomb’s Xavier team beat the Lady Vols in the NCAA tournament. That was the first time she got what she called the “Pat finger” wagging at her.
Those watching thought Summitt chewed her out and Balcomb was asked what she said. Summitt simply told her that Xavier had kicked Tennessee and deserved to win, while Balcomb could only stare up at the taller Summitt.
“Why I stay at Vanderbilt is to play against her because she is the best,” Balcomb said.
Summitt said jokingly that Warlick wants her job, and she is a likely successor if she ever retires. Summitt, who turned 59 on Tuesday, said she expects to coach at least three, four or five more years. She’s looking forward to the top recruits she has lined up.
“There are some teams out there I don’t want to give up,” she said.
