Candace.......Candace....You go Girl!

I rarely get into Womens' basketball..............but..........

I find myself rather infatuated with one Candace Parker. She of the Tennessee Lady Vols basketball team. The 22 year old stands 6' 4" and can dunk. And she is very attractive. And she is very smart.

Ms. Parker has announced she will give up her senior year at the school to pursue her WNBA dream. But........she's only giving up a year of basketball eligibility. Candace will graduate at the end of this season.

After leading the Lady Volunteers to their seventh national championship last season, Parker played with the U.S. national team during her summer break as the team earned its 2008 Olympic bid.

"Candace was ready for the pros two years ago," U.S. team coach Anne Donovan said. "I think it's an exciting day. Tennessee's had her long enough."

Parker also earned the women's 2007 John R. Wooden Award.

A uniquely versatile player, she is mainly a forward, but is listed on Tennessee's roster as a forward, center, and guard.

Candace, whose brother Anthony plays for the NBA's Toronto Raptors, is engaged to NBA player Shelden Williams, currently a member of the Sacramento Kings.

We applaud Candace..........and wish her well.
