Summitt, Tennessee To Face No. 1 Baylor

Posted: Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Baylor's unbeaten run and star Brittney Griner's rousing slam dunk have gotten most of the attention in Des Moines Regional.

And the coaching future of Tennessee's Pat Summitt after this season is still up in the air.

Top-seeded Baylor (37-0) faces Summitt and second-seeded Tennessee (27-8) for a trip to the Final Four on Monday night.

If the Bears win, it could mark the final time Summitt roams the sidelines after 38 years and 1,098 wins with the Lady Vols. Summitt announced in August she'd been diagnosed with early onset dementia, Alzheimer's type, and has not committed to coaching next season.

Tennessee assistant Holly Warlick said the Lady Vols are focused on Baylor, not Summitt's future.
