NEW YORK (AP) - Former Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt will receive the U.S. Tennis Association’s Billie Jean King Legacy Award, which honors people who have helped change the global cultural landscape.
Summitt, the winningest coach in NCAA college basketball history, stepped down in April, less than eight months after revealing she had early-onset dementia.
USTA CEO Gordon Smith hailed this year’s recipients as “champions of diversity and inclusion.”
Summitt said she is “especially honored” to receive the legacy award on the 40th anniversary of Title IX.
