Candace Parker will honor her college coach, the late Pat Summitt, by wearing orange shoes for the month of June. The Former Tennessee standout will wear the Lady Vols colors the entire month because Summitt’s birthday was in June, and it was also the month Summitt passed away.
Parker attended Tennessee from 2004 – 2008 which Parker and her coach helped lead the team to back-to-back championships in 2007 and 2008.
Parker tweeted a message to honor Summitt.
