A meeting of friends disguised as opponents

Like yesterday’s UCLA-Arizona game, today’s meeting between Tennessee and South Carolina will be an assembly of familiar faces. USC Coach Dawn Staley’s assistants, Carla McGhee and Nikki McCray, used to play for Summitt, who will achieve 997 wins if the Vols win today.

Summitt has been coaching at UT for 35 years and her influence is being felt, as so many of her former players and/or assistants are filtering out around the country in head and assistant coaching positions. If we all had a fraction of the legacy of Summitt, we’d have lived an amazing life.
