NEW YORK -- Darius Washington recovered from missing free throws that would have sent Memphis to the 2005 NCAA Tournament.

How he handles the disappointment of going unselected -- only two days after he lost his amateur status by signing with an agent -- might be an even bigger challenge.

Washington could have returned to Memphis for his junior season had he held off on signing with Roger Montgomery. The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported Monday, though, that his father said he and his son were "confident and comfortable" with the decision.
