LAS VEGAS (AP) Nikki Fargas, then known as Nikki Caldwell, was an assistant coach at the University of Tennessee when she successfully recruited Candace Parker in the early 2000s.

Parker would go on to lead the Volunteers to national championships in 2007 and 2008, earning AP national player of the year both seasons.

Fargas, now the Las Vegas Aces president, found herself again successfully recruiting Parker last month, convincing the two-time WNBA MVP to sign with the defending champions.
