Of course she did. She is the preeminent female Basketball coach in history. Try and name one other. Most people cannot. She did not receive as much fame as her male counterparts because not as many people watch women's basketball as they do men's basketball. That is not her fault.
I agree that Pat Summitt received the amount of recognition that she deserved as a top basketball coach. Pat Summitt received a lot of social media attention, television time, and awards for her accomplishments. She will be remembered as one of the best basketball coaches of her time. She led her teams to many great championships.
Before Geno Auriema, there was Pat Summitt. Summitt was indisputably the best women's basketball coach of all time, and even with Auriema's run of success at UCONN, it's not even close. As the coach at Tennessee, Summitt won games. She won a lot of games. Besides the wins and losses and the X's and O's, though, Summitt is better known for the impact she had on the student athletes she coached. She built an empire, but she also built high quality human beings.
No, Pat Summitt did not receive the amount of recognition that she deserved. As a woman, she coached her team to 1,098 wins and 18 national championships but received little recognition. Summitt was largely ignored by media outlets, likely because women's basketball receives little coverage because of issues with gender equality in sports.
