There's been plenty of off-campus activity involving former Lady Vols this week. Candace Parker and Tamika Catchings were named All-WNBA, while Parker, Catchings and Glory Johnson were invited to attend the 2013 USA Women's National Team mini-camp Oct. 4-6 in Las Vegas.
Catchings also is featured in "Hoop the American Dream," a book of photographs by Robin Layton that features photographs of basketball goals all around the country and stories told by the users of those hoops. In addition to Catchings, Layton's book also features UT Head Coach Emeritus Pat Summitt and former Lady Vols Chamique Holdsclaw and Michelle Marciniak.
Coach Summitt also was in the news for attending a fundraiser in Clarksville for the Pat Summitt Foundation. Summitt was born in nearby Cheatham County in the town of Henrietta.
