Tennessee Lady Vols head coach emeritus Pat Summitt underwent ankle surgery on Tuesday and is doing fine, said Adam Waller, director of community relations for Summitt's foundation.

Summitt's last public appearance was last Thursday during the Lady Vols' home game against LSU when she was on the court during the ceremony to retire Candace Parker's jersey.
