NYT quotes Tucker Center's Kane in article on Pat Summit's early-onset Alzheimer's

Mary Jo Kane, professor of sport sociology in Kinesiology and director of the Tucker Center, was quoted in the New York Times article, "A History of Fearlessness," on legendary coach Pat Summit's stature in the world of women's sports. Kane says, "In modern history, there are two figures that belong on the Mount Rushmore of women's sports—Billie Jean King and Pat Summitt. No one else is close to third."
