Lady Vols Head Coach Emeritus Pat Summitt has a new honor to add to her list.

Monday, the University of Tennessee raised a banner to the rafters of Thompson-Boling Arena bearing the legendary coach's name. The court below is already named after her too.

Many of Summitt's former players like Candace Parker and Alicia Manning were on hand to watch the ceremony.

"She's a very special woman and deserves everything that she was given tonight," Parker said.

Thousands of fans also came to the UT campus just to get a glimpse of Summitt.

One man at the arena with his daughter told 10News Summitt and the rest of the Lady Vols are role models.

"I want her [my daughter] to experience basketball early and show her women can do a lot of things men can do," said Sean Cash.
