Notes From Friday's Memphis Madness; Top Recruit Derrick Rose and NBA's Larry Brown in Attendance
Top recruit Derrick Rose, a point guard rated the No. 3 player in the country by Rivals, attended Friday's Memphis Madness. He is taking his official visit to Memphis this weekend. ... After player introductions, a highlight video from last season played on the scoreboard. The soundtrack? "One Shining Moment," the song played annually at the conclusion of the Final Four. ... Players helped raise the 2006 NCAA Elite Eight banner to the rafters Friday, but it didn't stay there long. It was taken down for the Grizzlies' game tonight. ... Calipari introduced friend and longtime NBA coach Larry Brown, who was sitting courtside. Brown received a standing ovation.
