ATLANTA (AP) - The Three Meeks of Tennessee women's basketball got together to support former coach Pat Summitt's foundation on Wednesday night.

Chamique Holdsclaw and Semeka Randall sat in courtside seats to watch Tamika Catchings and the Indiana Fever play the Atlanta Dream, who donated some ticket sales to Summitt's foundation.

Nicknamed the Three Meeks, Holdsclaw, Catchings and Randall helped Tennessee go 39-0 and win the 1998 NCAA title, the Lady Vols' third straight and fifth of 8 national championships under Summitt.

Foundation director Patrick Wade said Summitt was unable to attend the Fever's game against Atlanta because of previous obligations.

Summitt's foundation seeks to advance research, provide support and education the public on the impact of Alzheimer's disease. Summitt retired in April 2012 after being diagnosed with early onset dementia.
