It was only a matter of time with that illness she has...will always be one if not the best womens college coaches of all time
 
She is like the female JoPa of women's basketball 
 
She will be missed and should be honored for her contributions.
 
I've heard comparisons to John Wooden of UCLA. She needs to take care of herself now after taking care of 1000's of young women.
 
She needs a vacation and a smile.
