Pat Summitt will receive the John R. Wooden "Legends of Coaching" award next year, becoming the first women's basketball coach to be honored in the 10-year history of the Los Angeles Athletic Club award. The Tennessee coach has won seven national championships, and her 947 victories are more than any college basketball coach in history.

For only the third time in the 24-year history of the women's NCAA tournament, the Final Four coaches are all women. And one of them has been there all three times. That, of course, would be Tennessee's Pat Summitt, who could serve as the face of women's college basketball. She is taking the Lady Vols to Indianapolis this weekend in search of an unprecedented seventh national championship.

Cheryl Miller, already among the most cordially disliked basketball coaches for taking the USC women's job, has now been accused of purloining mail. Apparently a scouting report on Miller's USC women's basketball team fell into the wrong hands last week. Miller's.

Watch out, Dean Smith. Pat Summitt isn't retiring anytime soon. Summitt became the first coach in women's college basketball to win 800 games when No. 5-ranked Tennessee defeated No. 25 DePaul, 76-57, Tuesday night at Knoxville, Tenn. Summitt is the fourth men's or women's coach in Division I with 800 victories behind Smith, Adolph Rupp of Kentucky and Jim Phelan of Mount Saint Mary's. Smith retired in 1997 as North Carolina's coach with a record 879 victories.

She's a farmer's daughter, from Henrietta, Tenn. She can milk cows, plant and harvest tobacco, pitch hay, repair barn doors, weld, fix tractors and fences, split and haul firewood and shovel manure. Pat Summitt did all that in her childhood and teenage years for her flinty, poker-faced, slow-to-praise father, Richard Head. And all she really wanted was a hug, maybe a kiss from her father, telling her how much he loved her, how proud he was of her. For years, she waited.

Pat Summitt preferred to focus on beating Vanderbilt. For her Tennessee players, helping the NCAA's winningest coach get her 900th victory was a lasting memory. "No one in the whole world except the 10 of us that are left can say they've played for a coach who's won 900 games," sophomore Nicky Anosike said. "I'm just happy to be a part of it." Shanna Zolman led five Lady Vols in double figures with 16 points, and top-ranked Tennessee rallied from its biggest deficit this season in beating No.

There were 33 seconds left in a game with its outcome decided when UCLA's Marie Philman found herself alone under the basket for a "freebie," as her coach, Kathy Olivier, likes to call uncontested inside shots. Philman went up for the shot, a two-footer . . . and missed it. She went into a crouch and slowly covered her eyes, evoking a feeling of frustration and disbelief that was commonplace Sunday afternoon at Pauley Pavilion, where No. 5-ranked Tennessee beat the No.
