    Memphis had this game and the FT shooting came back to haunt them in the end. Chris Douglas-roberts, the guy from Nortwestern HS in Detroit missed 3 key free throws down the stretch and freshman Rose missed 1. Then the Tigers failed to foul a Jayhawk player in the last 10 seconds while protecting a 3 point lead.

    To top it off Memphis scores 3 FT the last 2 mins and no FG's while the Jayhawks go on an 18-3 run to take over the game and win in OT

    Good game though and a lot a good athletes on both teams.

    That sure was an exciting finish! Memphis gagged it away, but how clutch was Kansas...they made some COLOSSAL shots in the final two minutes in the biggest stage of them all. It was an amazingly impressive performance down the stretch by them.

    Some Tiger team had to lose on Monday and since the Detroit Tigers had the day off the Memphis Tigers had to suffer that fate..

    I think Derrick Rose attempted to foul the guy with the ball coming down the floor, but the refs who missed a ton of fouls in that game swallowed their whistles & ignored it and let the guy who received the pass shoot...which would have been the right thing to do, but unfortunately for the Tigers the three ball went in..after than everybody in america knew that the Kansas momentum would carry them to the victory in OT

    Rose is a freshman...if they had won, he probably would have gone pro and I think Riles would have taken him over Beasley.....all the heat needed was Rose, Marion and Wade...and Shaq may have considered coming back:)

    Memphis seemed confused on that last play. Calipari said afterwards that they were trying to foul, but as KU's point guard brought it up the floor and drove to the right, Rose briefly held his arms up to indicate to the refs that he wasn't trying to foul.

    Dre, you don't think Rose is coming back to school for another year, do you? Everyone is expecting him to turn pro. He's pretty much a lock to go either #1 or #2 overall in the draft, with Beasley being the other potential top pick.

    My buddy thinks that Rose will go now and he is afraid he will fall to someone in the east like Miami or Milwaukee and terrorize the east not next year but at least from 2010 to 2015!! I know he is point guard, but I would trade Rip and our # 1 to get him and move CB to the 2

    Mikhail was the only one of us in bracketology PF group to pick Kansas and of course he won the whole darn thing>>> Congrats Mikey

    If memphis had won, Coynejeremey would have won our tourney with 145 points and I would have finished second with 127. Instead I had to settle for 5th place with my 101..

    Kansas had the highest calculated probability to win and wasn't a popular pick, so I was somewhat gambling on their winning since I knew that it would be nearly impossible to do good otherwise. Actually, I thought it was over when I saw the score scrolling and Memphis was up 8 in the 2nd half.

    Yep Candace Parker gets another championship last night and was just selected #1 by the LA Sparks ...That means not only a possible return to the finals for the Sparks as she teams up with Lisa Leslie. But expect her to show up on a few TV shows too since she is now in Hollywood. The endorsements are endless...I want to introduce her to my son who is the same age as her to capitalize on the mula but at 6'4, she is 2 inches taller than him and she is already engaged to the Shelden Wiliams of the Sacramento Kings...

    With the 4th pick, the Shock took Alexis Hornbuckle who also shared the back to back championships with Parker at Tennessee. Right on Bill
