The day before the start of the final four.....and it's showtime

The Kodak All-American Women's Basketball was team was selected prior to the start of the Final Four matchup......Candice was selected from UT....that young lady in the first row on the a problem. Ivory Latta is agressive.....she is fast....and she takes no prisioners.....with 16.2 points per game, the leader in assists, and shoots 85.5% free throws. But more then this, she can somehow throw a three pointer in at the exact perfect movement during the game.

Candice also won the2007 State Farm Wade Trophy Player of the Year 20 minutes after being named on the Kodak All-American team. She and Daedra Charles Furlow are the only two Lady Vols to be so named. It was the first time in the 30 year history that a sophomore has been named for this award.

"I am incredibly honored," said Parker. "I want to thank my coaches, teammates and family, because if it weren't for them, I wouldn't be standing here today. I am so blessed."

The fans were everywhere on Saturday following the team around from the hotel to the arena for a shoot open and one closed session, the media event, the autograph sessions and so on.

So there they were standing on the floor....looking at the logo and smiling from ear to ear...a lot of things were overcome this season to get here.....a lose in the SEC Championship Game....a lose to the NC, a lose to Duke during regular season....but here they were.

And WOW what a great arena that Cleveland has, the shoot around for each session last one let's warm up girls.....HEHE

Let's give thanks for the opportunity we have before us...and get fired up....

And let's just relax and enjoy this experience, let's do our best, but first and foremost let's remember we are a team and we are the VOLS!!!!!!!
