INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The NCAA has concluded a meeting with Memphis officials to discuss major violations and the school must now wait at least six weeks for a ruling on whether its 38 wins from the 2007-08 season will count.
The most serious allegation taken up at Saturday's meeting is whether an unknown person took the SAT for a player.
The NCAA has said the athlete in question played for the Tigers for only the 2007-08 season and in the 2008 NCAA tournament. The only person who fits that description in documents obtained by The Associated Press is Derrick Rose, the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft after that season.
Memphis athletic director R.C. Johnson had no comment after the four-hour meeting. Memphis president Dr. Shirley Raines also would not speak, but released a statement reiterating the school's commitment to playing by the rules.
