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 were already preparing for an NCAA hearing Saturday to answer charges that a former player, reportedly Derrick Rose, cheated on his SAT exam.
Dozier's inconsistent SAT scores prevented him from being admitted to Georgia. His initial SAT score was invalidated by the company that scores the exam, and his follow-up score was 540 points lower, according to Georgia records obtained Friday by The Associated Press. Dozier's SAT problems were first reported by ESPN.com.
Georgia denied his admission in 2004, the records show. His four-year career at Memphis ended with the 2008-09 season.
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 is not expected to have to answer questions Saturday about Dozier, but the Committee on Infractions could follow up with another hearing. Dozier gave an oral commitment to Memphis in 2003 but signed with Georgia in March 2004. He wound up back with Memphis and graduated from the school May 9, receiving a degree in interdisciplinary studies.
