MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -Memphis freshman Derrick Rose announced he was jumping to the NBA Tuesday, the same day coach John Calipari agreed in principle to a contract extension with the school.
Rose capped his spectacular first season by leading Memphis to the national championship game, where they lost to Kansas in overtime.
The 6-foot-3 guard from Chicago averaged 20.8 points in six NCAA tournament games and will likely be taken with one of the top picks in the draft.
