Coach Cal Honored at Racquet Club

University of Memphis hoops Coach John Calipari is feeling pretty good about his program..

He's not alone.

Calipari is honored Tuesday night at the Racquet Club for producing the Winningest College Basketball season in history...

Everyone from the Bisho..and Police Chief..to our own Joe Birch, who served as emcee for the event, got a chance to take shots at Coach Cal in a good natured way.

Winning a record 38-games is not the -end al-l to the great season... Derrick Rose could quite possibly be the NBA's top Pick, keeping the program on a National stage.

"Lets not kid ourselves...he's gone be number #1. I've had the #2 pick before in Marcus Camby but never #1. I think I'm gonna go to New York Thursday and just feel it all. What he's done for this program has been really special."

Coach Cal says they still have two scholarships to give this year, but are probably done for now.

Next year's class is considered one of the tops in the country.
