NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame is dedicating a permanent exhibit to former Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt that opens Friday as the Women's Final Four comes to Nashville.
    
The exhibit will feature memorabilia, photos, videos and interactive displays highlighting Summitt's career. The Nashville Local Organizing Committee is providing free admission to the exhibit starting Friday and running through April 8.
    
Summitt won 1,098 games - more than any other men's or women's college basketball coach in history - and led Tennessee to eight national titles in her 28-year tenure. She stepped down as Tennessee's coach in 2012, one year after announcing she had early-onset dementia, Alzheimer's type. Summitt remains on Tennessee's staff as head coach emeritus.
    
The Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame is located inside Bridgestone Arena.
