KNOXVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt is working on a new talent: Impersonations.

Summitt donned a cardboard version of a flat-top fade hairdo _ the same hairstyle worn by Volunteers junior guard Scotty Hopson _ to imitate Hopson as part of a promotion for his entry in CBS’s Dunk of the Year contest.

Hopson made the finals with his one-handed slam over the head of South Carolina guard Brian Richardson in a 73-67 win on Feb. 16.

In a YouTube video, Summitt tells fans she’s Hopson and asks for their vote in the online contest.

Others in the Tennessee program have filmed similar videos, including assistant men’s coach Steve Forbes, Vols Skylar McBee and Renaldo Woolridge and radio color analyst Bert Bertelkamp.
