Flowers For Sale Biography

With the addition of Rose and led by veteran upperclassmen Joey Dorsey and Chris Douglas-Roberts, the Tigers started out the season ranked third in the nation. Memphis sprinted to a 26–0 start and claimed the number one ranking in the country for the first time in over 25 years before falling to the University of Tennessee Volunteers 66–62 in February.[39] Memphis was able to bounce back and capture the Conference USA Tournament to qualify for the "Big Dance" with a 33–1 record.[40] Rose averaged 14.9 points per game, 4.7 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game during the regular season and earned All-American Third Team honors among others.[41] He finished as a finalist for the Bob Cousy Award as well as the John R. Wooden Award.[42]
Memphis was seeded No. 1 in the South Region. Rose earned high praise for his increased focus on defense, hounding Texas Longhorn guard D.J. Augustin into a low-percentage game in the Elite Eight.[43] In a match-up against the UCLA in the Final Four, Rose finished with 25 points and 9 rebounds while putting pressure on Bruins' point Darren Collison to lead the Tigers to the NCAA championship game against the Kansas Jayhawks with an 85–67 victory.[44] The win set a NCAA mark for most wins in a season (38).[45] Against Kansas, Rose scored 17 points on 7–17 shooting, with six rebounds and seven assists, but missed a critical free throw at the end of the second half, as Memphis fell in overtime, 75–68.[46] Memphis concluded the season 38–2. Rose was named to the All-Final Four team after averaging 20.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 6 assists during the tourney.[47]
On April 15, Rose declared for the 2008 NBA Draft.[48]According to the University of Memphis' legal counsel Sheri Lipman, a month after the loss to Kansas, the NCAA sent a letter to the school stating that Rose had "an invalidated standardized test score the previous year at Chicago's Simeon High School". The next January, the NCAA sent another letter, charging Memphis with knowing that Rose had someone else take his SAT for him.[49] Memphis started its own investigation and sent its response back on April 24.[50]
