#5 Seed: John Calipari's 2007/08 Memphis Tigers were one of the most talented, enigmatic basketball teams to ever lace them up.  Solid with the ball, and solid on D - these CUSA champions lacked one critical skill: shooting.  Nowhere was the deficit more obvious than at the foul line, where critical misses essentially gave Kansas its championship comeback window of opportunity. Derrick Rose has since gone on to become an NBA legend/MVP.  Coach Cal crossed the Tennesee state line into the mighty elite program that is Kentucky.  The 2007/08 Memphis Tigers will be remembered as a great team with one vulnerability - the uncharitable strip known as the Free throw line - which ultimately became their undoing.
