KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee's Candace Parker made her seventh career dunk and first of the season Sunday against Kentucky.
The 6-foot-4 Parker chased the ball after Chante Bowman lost control of it at midcourt. She gained control at the baseline, turned around and dunked with 8:08 left in the game.
The basket gave the No. 2 Lady Vols a 59-39 lead.
Parker dunked last season against Tennessee rival Connecticut, one of four last season. She also dunked twice in her freshman season against Army in the NCAA tournament.
LSU All-American Sylvia Fowles is the only other women's college player to dunk this season. Only six women have dunked in a college game.
