Tennessee women's F Parker injured

STARKVILLE, Mississippi - Tennessee women's forward Candace Parker left Thursday's 87-69 victory over Mississippi State with a left knee injury.

The leading scorer for the second-ranked Volunteers, Parker was hurt while driving to the hoop with 3:09 remaining in the game.

The junior forward had to be helped off the court but, according to Mississippi State team physician, Bob Collins, all of her ligaments appear to be "sound" and it "appears as if she has hyperextended it."

There was no word on how much time Parker could miss.

Parker, who led Tennessee to the national championship last season, finished the contest with a season-low 11 points to go with 11 rebounds and seven assists in the contest. She was averaging 20 points per game entering play Thursday night.
