Texas Falls Short of Final Four

HOUSTON - John Calipari has a good reason for calling his
Memphis Tigers a "Dream Team" - a kid from Chicago who wears No.
23 and makes plays that bring fans out of their seats.
With freshman Derrick Rose soaring and scoring, Memphis ended
two years of regional final failure and routed Texas 85-67 Sunday
to reach the Final Four. The victory backed up the Tigers'
season-long reign near the top of the poll and made them the third
No. 1 seed headed to San Antonio.
Rose scored 21 points, outplaying Texas star D.J. Augustin and
leading the Tigers (37-1) into a national semifinal Saturday
against a UCLA team making its third straight Final Four
appearance.
