ATLANTA (AP) - Robert Dozier is the second men's basketball player who starred on the Memphis team that made it to the 2008 championship game to have questions arise about his entrance exams.
University officials already were preparing for an NCAA hearing Saturday to answer charges that a former player, believed to Derrick Rose, cheated on his SAT exam.
Dozier's inconsistent SAT scores prevented him from being admitted to the University of Georgia. His initial SAT score was invalidated by the company that scores the exam, and his follow-up score was dramatically lower, according to Georgia records obtained Friday by The Associated Press.
Dozier's problems with his SATs prompted the University of Georgia to deny his admission in 2004. His 4-year career at Memphis ended with the 2008-09 season.
Dozier's SAT problems were first reported by ESPN.com.
Memphis officials will answer questions about Rose in a hearing with the NCAA Committee on Infractions on Saturday in Indianapolis. Former Memphis coach John Calipari, now at Kentucky, will participate in the hearing from China by telephone.
Memphis athletic director R.C. Johnson declined comment Friday on Dozier when contacted by The Associated Press, saying he was focused on preparations for Saturday's hearing.
