Lady Vols Will Retire Parker's Jersey On January 2
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee will retire Candace Parker's No. 3 jersey before its January 2 game against LSU, 1 of 11 teams on the Lady Vols' 2013-14 schedule that reached last season's NCAA tournament.
The Lady Vols Tuesday announced their 2013-14 schedule and the date to honor Parker, now playing with the WNBA's Los Angeles Sparks. Tennessee previously said it would retire Parker's jersey this season, but no date was set.
Tennessee's schedule also features a November 11 trip to North Carolina, a December 21 visit to Stanford and a January 20 home matchup with Notre Dame. Tennessee faces Virginia on November 28 in its opening game in the Bahamas.
Tennessee's Southeastern Conference schedule includes two games apiece with LSU, Vanderbilt and Mississippi plus one game each with all other league opponents.
