Memphis to Vacate 2007-08 Season, Emotional Damage Lingers

New, comments

Remember this game?

I know I sure do.  The image of Joey Dorsey blocking Matt Bouldin's three-point attempt and running down court for a furious dunk still plays in my head from time to time. 

Anyways, it turns out Gonzaga didn't technically lose this game since Memphis will have to vacate their entire 2007-08 season which happened to result in 38 wins and the title of national runner up.  The ruling will come later today, ESPN reports, and will be the only penalty that Memphis and former head man John Calipari will face.  Stripping a team of a final four run is pretty small potatoes when you consider that the allegation was a fake SAT score that helped then freshman phenom and current Chicago Bull Derrick Rose get in to Memphis. 

The best part is that Jeremy Pargo outdueled Mr. Rose, scoring 25 points in comparison to Rose's 19.  But still, you can't take away the memory of Joey Dorsey.
