6-7 forward Michael Ford will not be at Memphis next season. In fact, the Boo Williams Invitational Tournament MVP will not be at Fitchburg (MA) Notre Dame Prep this year either. The skinny forward decided that he was homesick and has enrolled at Alabama A&M, which is just two or three miles from his home. Ford will sit out the season as partial qualifier and will be eligible for the 2003-04 season.
