Did Derrick Rose Cheat on His SAT?
That’s what D-Rose and the University of Memphis are being accused of: “The University of Memphis is responding to an NCAA notice of allegations charging the men’s basketball program with major violations during the 2007-08 season under John Calipari. The allegations include ‘knowing fraudulence or misconduct’ on an SAT exam by a player on the 2007-08 team.The NCAA alleged the prospective player became eligible after an ‘unknown individual’ completed his SAT. The player, said the NCAA, ‘subsequently competed for the men’s basketball team through the 2007-08 season, which included his participation in the 2008 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship.’ The player’s name was redacted in the report, obtained by The Commercial Appeal on Wednesday through the Freedom of Information Act, because of privacy laws. The player has subsequently denied the charge, according to university personnel. The only player on the roster who competed only during that season was Derrick Rose, who subsequently was the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft last June.”
