Report due on alleged NCAA violations at Memphis

Thursday, the NCAA is expected to announce its findings regarding alleged infractions committed by the University of Memphis basketball team two years ago.

ESPN.com is reporting potential penalties include vacating the Tigers' Final Four run.

The possible infractions center around an alleged fraudulent SAT score by player Derrick Rose and more than $2,000 in free travel for Rose's brother.

Current University of Kentucky coach John Calipari was the head coach at Memphis at the time of the alleged violations.

However, he has not been named in any of the allegations.

Calipari tells ESPN he was unaware the report would be released Thursday.
