Calipari strikes gold once again

After a series of major NBA disappointments way back in the era of high-school freshmen being allowed to go directly to the NBA, John "used car salesman" Calipari has managed to string a trio of lottery pick recruits. The one that started it all was Derrick Rose, and he led the Tigers to being the co-champions of 2008. Next up was Tyreke Evans, who may end up being more of an OJ-Mayo type, meaning he would be more effective in the NBA-game than the college game.

And fast-forward to today, the Memphis Tigers have picked up a huge commit for next season, highly-touted Xavier Henry, and ironically perhaps, the battle for Xavier was a rematch of the 2008 NCAA tournament championship. And Memphis won again :-)
