Pat Summitt: UT artist paints tribute to legendary coach on ‘the Rock'

Tennessee will hold a celebration of life for legendary basketball coach Pat Summitt on the court named after her at Thompson-Boiling Arena on Thursday night.

Payton Miller, a student artist known for her depictions of famous UT athletes, paid tribute to Summitt with a mural on the campus landmark "the Rock" ahead of the service.

There aren't enough words to describe what Pat Summitt meant not only to the state of Tennessee but college basketball as well. But they say pictures can paint a thousand words for a reason.

Miller did just that.
