Lady Vols Reach The Summitt One More Time

By  | 

Winning never seems to get old for the Tennessee women's basketball team. The Lady Vols beat Stanford 64-48 for their eighth national championship under coach Pat Summitt. That places her just two behind legendary UCLA men's coach John Wooden on the all-time titles list in college basketball.

Summitt says "it's all about the team" in trying to deflect attention from herself and onto her players. Candace Parker was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player despite playing with an injured shoulder.

Tennessee is the first repeat champion since Connecticut won three in a row from 2002 to 2004.
