The Memphis Tigers' three-year probationary period in the aftermath of Derrick Rose's academic ineligibility has ended as of Sunday.
The Commercial Appeal's Kyle Veazey pointed out that the sanctions levied against the school are now a thing of the past. But it's not enough to bring back the 38 victories or Final Four run by that year's team, led by the Chicago Bulls point guard and now-Kentucky head coach John Calipari.
Rose, who spent one year in college, was ruled academically ineligible in an NCAA investigation following his time at Memphis. In the report, a player that was unnamed but matched Rose's description alone was accused of having another person take his SAT test.
After the investigation, Rose said he had indeed took the SAT but he did not respond NCAA investigators who attempted to contact him for proof.
Currently recovering from an ACL tear with the Bulls, the most recent reports about Rose indicate he is ahead of schedule. The 2010-11 NBA MVP holds career averages of 21 points and 6.8 assists per game.
