Summitt accepted the award Tuesday during a lunch at the New York Athletic Club.
Summitt stepped down as Tennessee's coach last April after announcing in 2011 that she has early-onset dementia, Alzheimer's type. Summitt won 1,098 games and eight national titles in 38 seasons, giving her the most career Division I victories of any men's or women's coach in history. She remains on Tennessee's staff as head coach emeritus.
