 SAN ANTONIO (AP) -Memphis freshman sensation Derrick Rose has a stomach ailment that forced him to miss media sessions Sunday.
Rose received treatment from trainers instead and is expected to play in Monday's national championship game against Kansas.
He walked into a scheduled group interview with his fellow starters and coach John Calipari, then went over to Calipari and whispered something to him. They went into the hall together, then Calipari returned alone.
``He said his stomach was bothering him,'' Calipari said. ``I told him to go back and see the trainer.''
The Tigers were scheduled to practice at the Alamodome at 2 p.m., but Calipari opted to work out elsewhere. A team spokesman said Rose's status would be updated later Sunday.
Teammates weren't too worried.
``He eats Gummy Bears and Starburst for breakfast, and Twizzlers and Honey Buns for dinner. That's why his stomach hurts,'' fellow guard Chris Douglas-Roberts said. ``We tell Derrick the whole year, 'Stop eating so many Gummy Bears and Sour Straws.' But he can't. ... Nobody eats Gummy Bears more than him.''
