from joini ing pat summitt to he 1,000 career victories. mike shumann sat down today and asked her if she's had time to think about this milestone. >> i think people like yourself remind me it's coming. i want it to happen. and i think it would be great to happen with this particular team as a fun team to work with, but, you know, when i'm in maples, like just even in here, you look at the pictures of the great players we had and too many to name and that is why our team is successful. we've had great players. i think a great staff and great support and fans and it's just a fun ride and i just want to keep it going. >> well, you, like i said and pat summitt will be the only two women that achieved this and i know she was kind of a role model and a colleague at the same time for you and passed away recently. what does that mean to join pat summitt? >> obviously, i wish she was
6:54 pm
still here to, you know, help celebrate, you know, but, you know, she's obviously a legend in women's basketball and it's very, very elite company and i'm humbled and very privileged. >> tara is respected throughout the sport not just in the women's game. steve kerr is a huge fan. >> it takes great commitment, takes great partnership with your employers and obviously, great relationships with your players, you don't last that long unless people enjoy playing for you. so she's a hall of famer. >> no doubt about that. tiger woods returns to an official pga tour event for the first time in 17 months. he'll tee off tomorrow and weather is among the things he's concerned about. woods says he's a florida softy now and it was in the 40s this morning in san diego. traffic and weather together on the 7s.
6:55 pm
woods will be paired with two of the best in the world, jason day and dustin johnson. eight career wins at torrey pines, that was the old tiger. woods now admits he has no idea what to expect. >> we all know i haven't played a full schedule in a very long time. so this is an unknown and so one of the reasons why i'm playing four out of five is to get in the playing rhythm of competitive golf. i've been away for it for so long. >> the man who coined the phrase, you are looking live is retiring. brent will call his last game at the end of this month. >> you are looking live in washington. something you will never forget. cut by boston college, i don't believe it. >> the legendary sports caster has done it all from his early days at cbs as the first big-time nfl host and college
6:56 pm
football. if you heard brent's voice, you knew it was a big game. i was in the student newspaper and he spent half an hour talking with me on the phone about his career. had no reason to do that, nothing to gain, just did it. years later we worked together on espn radio and he never looked back, always looked forward and enjoy retirement. >> you are looking live. >> it doesn't get bigger than him. >> true. join us tonight at 9:0 0 on coffee tv. the united states downgraded on the democracy and nothing to do with the new actions of the administration. the bay area responds to president trump's executive actions on immigration. the fear and worries tonight as a president pushes forward on his controversial agenda. >> that is this edition of abc 7 news. appreciate your time. i'm dan ashley. >> i'm ama daetz. thanks for joining us.
