Ex-Memphis G Anderson: Those wins are ours

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Armed with his degree and touring the country pursuing his NBA dream, Antonio Anderson hasn't stopped being Memphis' best defender.

Only this time he's defending John Calipari's dominant team with words as the NCAA ponders whether to strip 38 wins from the 2007-08 season because of rules violations.

The school has come under fire for allegations that an unknown person took the SAT for a player.

The NCAA has said the person played for the Tigers for only the 2007-08 season and the 2008 NCAA tournament. The only person who fits the description in documents obtained by The Associated Press is Derrick Rose, the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft after that season.

There are also questions surrounding Robert Dozier, whose inconsistent SAT scores prevented him from being admitted to Georgia in 2004.

Anderson says it would be "very tough" to have the season that ended with a loss in the national championship game wiped from the record books. But, he says, the team will always have the wins in their own minds.

Anderson says he knows the team and coach did everything the right way.
