Did Calipari blow timeout?

He kept the timeout in his pocket. For the rest of his career, he'll have to answer for that. For the rest of his life, he'll have to ponder it. All year long, a source close to the Memphis program said last night, John Calipari has practiced exactly what to do in those situation - up three, time running out. All season long, the Tigers practiced fouling in those situations. Maybe Calipari figured they would remember. He must have. He didn't call a timeout to remind them. They didn't foul. Mario Chalmers hit a game-tying 3. Overtime was a formality; Kansas won the game, 75-68.
