Lady Vols will retire Parker's jersey on Jan. 2

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee will retire Candace Parker's No. 3 jersey before its Jan. 2 game against LSU, 1 of 11 teams on the Lady Vols' 2013-14 schedule that reached last season's NCAA tournament.

The Lady Vols Tuesday announced their 2013-14 schedule and the date for Parker's ceremony. Tennessee had said in March Parker, now playing with the WNBA's Los Angeles Sparks, this season, but a date wasn't set at that time.

Tennessee's schedule also features a Nov. 11 trip to North Carolina, a Dec. 21 visit to Stanford and a Jan. 20 home matchup with Notre Dame. Tennessee faces Virginia on Nov. 28 in its opening game in the Bahamas.

Tennessee's Southeastern Conference schedule includes two games apiece with LSU, Vanderbilt and Mississippi plus one game each with all other league opponents.
