When Sacramento's Tyreke Evans was named 2010 NBA Rookie of the Year, it marked the second straight year this honor went to a former Memphis Tiger (Derrick Rose took home the hardware a year ago). When was the last time a college could claim back-to-back ROYs?

In 1978, Phoenix guard Walter Davis was named Rookie of the Year. After the 1978-79 season, Kansas City Kings guard Phil Ford won the honor. Both Davis and Ford played their college ball at North Carolina.
