Parker dunks against UConn

Parker dunks against UConn

I had a front row seat on January 6, 2007 when Tennesee redshirt sophomore Candace Parker dunked (well pushed the ball over the rim) against the UConn Huskies at the Hartford Civic Center. 

Despite a comeback effort by UConn, the Lady Vols held on to win the game.

Parker has since gone on to the WNBA, by-passing a redshirt senior season under Pat Summitt, where she plays with Lisa Leslie on the LA Sparks. 

Parker who won two national titles at Tennessee was the Number 1 overall pick in the 2008 WNBA Draft.

The rookie has dunked twice so far in WNBA games this season.

And don’t forget comments on this post or any other here at Depth of Field are not only allowed but encouraged.  Thanks for looking!
