Candace Parker dunked in the NCAA tournament

I love it. When she won the dunk competition against the boys a couple years ago as a high school senior, it was only a matter of time that Naperville native Candace Parker would dunk in a college game.

She picked a heck of a time to do it: in the first round of the women’s NCAA tournament. The dunk gave Tennessee a one point lead, and they ended the first half up 50-26. It’s the first ever dunk in the NCAA women’s tournament.

Update: She dunked not once, but twice. has reactions to Candace’s feat. Great stuff. (Pun intended.)
