Vols, UConn in Final Four

Associated Press
OKLAHOMA CITY ó With Tennesseeís best player struggling to keep her arm in its socket, the fate of the Volunteers depended on someone digging through laundry on the team bus.
Candace Parkerís shoulder needed to be stabilized, and someone needed to find a sleeve to do the trick. Needless to say, coach Pat Summitt was a little bit antsy.
iIím about to have a fit as to why we donít have it right there,î she said.
Once the sleeve was located and Parker put it on, Tennessee was back on track for the Final Four.
Parker dislocated her left shoulder but still scored 26 points to lead the Lady Vols out of a second-half deficit for a 53-45 win over Texas A&M in the Oklahoma City Regional final Tuesday night.
Parker twice left the game in the first half with the injury and didnít return until midway through the second half. She scored six of the Lady Volsí points in an 8-0 run as they overcame a 42-37 deficit.
Connecticut 66, Rutgers 56
GREENSBORO ó Maya Moore hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with less than three minutes left to propel top-seeded UConn past the second-seeded Scarlet Knights in the Greensboro Regional championship.
