Well, he slept on it and decided to leave Memphis and head to Kentucky. Coach John Calipari is known for his recruiting skills and that is what Kentucky was looking for. He also has is a great overall coach who knows how to win games. Calipari has not coached in a major conference before (A10 and C-USA) and is now going to a major conference in the SEC. This will have an effect on recruits that were deciding to go to Memphis because of Coach Calipari and the recruits who will then decide to come to Kentucky. It will be interesting to see how Memphis turns out next season losing Calipari and Tyreke Evans who will opt to enter the NBA draft this summer.

Memphis Advances With Win Over Maryland

Yet another interesting match-up, but leads to a blow out. The Memphis Tigers looks interesting in the first fame of the tournament against Cal State Northridge, but bounced back today. Freshman Tyreke Evans lead his Tigers to a 89-70 victory over the Maryland Terps. They are looking to get to a championship this year.
