ABSTRACT
The article examines the University of Tennessee's women's basketball team in its victories in the first two rounds of the 2007 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament. The team's slow start before winning its opening game against underdog Drake is noted. The handicap of playing second-round opponent Pittsburgh on that team's home court is given. The play of Tennessee center Candace Parker, who scored 30 points, is cited as the main factor in Tennessee's victory over Pittsburgh.
