For four years, under the tutelage of legendary coach Pat Summitt, Nkolika “Nicky” Anosike learned not only about the game of basketball, but also more notably, the game of life. Coach Summitt realized that Nicky would be the hardest worker she had ever coached and one of the best-ever Lady Vol leaders. Most people know Nicky as a two-time national champion at the University of Tennessee in 2007 and 2008 and a former WNBA All-Star, but her accomplishments extend well past the court. She earned the 2008 NCAA Woman of the Year award, becoming just the second college basketball player to ever do so since the award started in 1995. Nicky also has been recognized for her contributions to advancing the lessons of Pat Summitt through education. This includes her work teaching a course titled “Pat Summitt Definite Dozen Leadership,” currently offered by the University of Tennessee. Nicky is a second-year PhD student and holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, where she currently lives with her husband and twin sons.
