Memphis player gets
fifth season to play
MEMPHIS (AP) — Memphis guard Charles Carmouche has received a fifth year of eligibility from the NCAA under a medical hardship request.
Tigers coach Josh Pastner announced the approval Wednesday. Carmouche graduated in May, and Pastner says he will meet with the 6-foot-3 guard to evaluate his next move.
Carmouche played in seven games last season and started four of those, averaging 6.3 points and 2.6 rebounds per game.
He shot 46.2 percent from 3-point range before severe tendinitis in both knees kept him from playing the rest of the season.
A native of New Orleans, La., he transferred to Memphis from the University of New Orleans in 2010.
He has played in 92 games with 75 starts while with the Tigers. Published in The Messenger 6.7.12
