In College Hoops, the Memphis Tigers welcomed back wayward teammate Kareem Cooper over the weekend after a 3-week suspension for Violation of Team rules.
Robert Dozier, Antonio Anderson, and Chris Douglas Roberts say they initiated the process.
<'We all came toghether and decided to go to coach's house to talk about it.'>
<'We're happy to have him back. We sure could have used his size against Georgia Tech.'>
Douglas-Roberts summarized it this way:
<'I think it was just something where coach wanted to teach him a lesson.'>
As for Head Coach John Calipari's immediate plans for Cooper?
<'I want him to be the biggest cheerleader on this team, bigger than the Blue Crew, cheering for this team.'>
The team would not divulge what 6'11' Cooper did to earn what amounts to his 3rd suspension in 2-years at Memphis.
Calipari says Cooper is only cleared to practice..not to play in games just yet.
The Tigers next game is Wednesday Night against Arkansas State at FedExForum.
