"For their endurance, for their adaptability, for their genius for hatching from adversity even more success and for their willingness to take up causes beyond the comfort of their own campuses—indeed, for modeling what it means to be public diplomats as well as great coaches—we honor Pat Summitt and Mike Krzyzewski as SI's 2011 Sportswoman and Sportsman of the Year.... The two share so many things that they deserve to be studied, not just honored, jointly."
