Tennessee's Parker Dunks Twice Against Army

By HANK KURZ Jr., AP Sports Writer 4 minutes ago

Tennessee's Candace Parker became the fourth woman to dunk in a college game — and the first do it twice — when the Lady Vols played Army in the first round of the NCAA tournament Sunday.

The first came when the 6-foot-4 redshirt freshman took an outlet pass from Sidney Spencer and jammed one-handed on a breakaway 6:12 into the game. With the large contingent of Tennessee fans roaring even before the attempt, Parker threw it down as Army's Margaree King looked on helplessly.

Later, with 14:18 to go in the second half, she was in the right corner and worked a give-and-go with Nicky Anosike, taking the return pass with a clear lane to dunk again.

The second one came even before a buzz of anticipation could start. Moments later, with Tennessee comfortably ahead, Parker came out with 13:42 remaining. She had 26 points, five rebounds and seven assists.

Parker showed her dunking skills several times during warmups, but had tried only one in college. Her attempt against Auburn came Feb. 23.

Parker joins Georgeann Wells of West Virginia in 1984, Charlotte Smith of North Carolina in 1994 and Michelle Snow of Tennessee in 2000 as college players to dunk in a game. Lisa Leslie of the WNBA's Los Angeles Sparks has dunked as a pro.

Wells' first dunk was a one-handed slam off a fullcourt pass in 1984, and sparked a media frenzy. She did it again a few weeks later.

Snow dunked three times in 2000.
