Women's basketball coaches will rock custom shoes in honor of Pat Summitt

by:Maggie Davis01/23/19


The Kentucky women's basketball game will be back in action Thursday night when they take on Missouri. And while it's the first game back following their bye week - and another challenging, top-25 matchup - it will mean a little extra to the coaching staff. The game is part of "We Back Pat Week" across the SEC, bringing awareness and honoring the legacy of Pat Summitt. Representatives of the Pat Summitt Foundation are also scheduled to be on hand for a special check presentation. Assistant coaches Niya Butts and Kyra Elzy will rock these custom sneakers by True Blue Customs. The shoes will also be auctioned off as part of the foundation's fight to end alzheimer's. Some sad news: the game will be extra bittersweet, as Pat Summitt's mother just passed away Wednesday afternoon. May their family find some peace during this heartbreaking time.
