Legendary basketball coach Pat Summitt passed away today at the age of 64.
Summitt is the winningest coach in the history of Division I college basketball. During her 38-year career, she amassed 1,098 wins and eight national titles. She was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2000 and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012.
But Summitt's greatest contributions came outside the court. As a pioneer in women's sports, she inspired generations of female athletes and coaches. And after her 2011 diagnosis of early onset dementia, 'Alzheimer's Type', she started a foundation that raised millions of dollars to fight the disease.
Here are 11 tributes athletes and coaches shared on Twitter that reveal Summitt's long-lasting legacy:
