Now that the 2006-07 University of Tennessee Lady Vols basketball season is officially ended, their star player no longer is making dazzling baskets and nifty assists. She's still making headlines, though.
, who led UT to the national title five weeks ago, is featured in a Mothers' Day salute posted at sportsillustrated.com. In fact, the 6-5 sophomore leads off an 18-person photo essay featuring famous athletes. The essay is entitled "Athletes' Favorite Gifts to Mothers."
Along with a fetching photo of Parker is this comment from the Lady Vol standout:
"The best present I ever gave my mother was either when I went through our photo album and cut our pictures and made a scrap book of photos of us or when I surprised her and came home from college when she thought I wasn't going to be able to."
Meanwhile, The Knoxville News-Sentinel is reporting that Parker is now engaged to Atlanta Hawks forward Shelden Williams.
