Pat Summitt's 1,000th win came on the court with her name on it.

On this day in 2009, legendary women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt won her 1,000th game during her 35th season at Tennessee with a 73-43 victory over Georgia. To mark the milestone, Tennessee announced that Summitt had signed a new contract through the 2014 season. Summitt, however, retired last April and finished her career with a total of 1,098 wins -- more than any man or woman in major-college basketball -- and a remarkable eight national championships with the Lady Vols.
