SPRINGFIELD, Mass.--In women's college basketball, the rivalry didn't get much bigger than Geno Auriema and Pat Summitt.

On the day Summitt passed away, fans remembered her competitive spirit and record of excellence.

From basketball courts to the Basketball Hall Of Fame, people weighed in on what Summitt meant to the sport.

That included the Zachary family, who were visiting from Knoxville, Tennessee.

"The fingerprints of her throughout the Hall Of Fame, where you come through the door, second level, third level," Jason Zachary said.  "It's pretty cool to be here."

Zachary is actually a state representative in Tennessee, representing Knoxville.  He says the legislature there will definitely do something to honor Summitt.
