Notre Dame Head Women's Basketball Coach Muffet McGraw remembers Pat Summitt

Notre Dame Head Women's Basketball Coach Muffet McGraw released a statement Tuesday morning about the passing of coaching legend Pat Summitt.

McGraw tweeted out support after reports of Summitt's declining health surfaced on Sunday. 

Summitt coached the Lady Vols to eight national championships in her 38 seasons and notched 1,098 career victories, more than any other Division I basketball coach. She was named NCAA coach of the year seven times.

Notre Dame famously upset the Lady Vols during the 2011 Elite Eight in Dayton, Ohio, 73-59.

In her best-selling memoir "Sum it Up", Summitt recalled the game saying, "When the final buzzer sounded, I stood on the sideline for a long moment, wondering if I had coached my last game."

Shortly after Summitt revealed she was battling early onset dementia, Alzheimers type. 

Summitt was 64.
