The legendary coach of the Tennessee Lady Vols could be coaching her final game tonight.

Pat Summitt has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and as this season progressed, her assistants and even her players have assumed more responsibility.

The Lady Vols, who have won eight national titles under Summitt, play top-seeded Baylor in a regional final Monday night.
