Stokes suiting up for Southwind against Briarcrest in a scrimmage game on November 16, 2011 and let me tell you folks, the atmosphere was just like a Grizzlies game, the whole nine yards for only 1,500 fans. Is this the only time Stokes will suit up and not for an TSSAA sanctioned game. MemphisHoopers thinks soooo!!!!!! Might be wrong so lets see, funnier things have happened in Memphis........

Recap 2-12-2011

Ridgeway in a weeks time beats two Number 1's from Hooper Top Ten. VOLATILE!!!!. but Hoopers staff believes the Spartans will prevail. Bottom line, don't no one want to travel to Dyer County because the result will not be the same as last year. No Joe Jackson.

Southwind,  Bartlett and Craigmont win handily in district action. ea teams want the Number 1 Game Recap: Whitehaven 43 vs. Central 65: (click here)

Recap 2-07-2011

Nitty Gritty: Don't no area teams want the Number 1 ranking VOLATILE!!!!. as Southwind gets throttled by Ridgeway in return makes a tie for district leader and once again Ridgeway is there. Hoopers staff had them in a rebuilding mode this year but Coach Henning has them in the thick of it again  Craigmont takes Number 1 for the second time this year and how long will they stay Number 1 because this time of the year that can mean the end of the season so very crucial Melrose gets things together with late season push with big wins over Central and White Station in the same week, big time Westwood back in the poll since Week 2 Cordova brief entry was negated with loss to rival Bartlett. Look at the amount of losses from all teams in poll and still ranked, unheard of in previous rankings.       Hoopers Top Ten Number 1's   Craigmont two week, one week  Southwind two weeks, two weeks  Melrose two weeks             White Station  one week

White Station @ Melrose

       Recap 3-20-2010

White Station (70)  @ Melrose (75)                                            Box Score

       In a short three years, Coach Jermaine Johnson has Melrose in the record books with a astounding victory over the defending state champions White Station Spartans.  Melrose deeply talented team was too much for the Spartans who missed two of their top scorers from scoring in double digits and much needed if any chance of winning. Tournament MVP Chris Jones (35 points and 5 steals) proved why he is a Tennessee commitment with his savvy ball handling, outside shooting when needed, and strong drives to the goal when called upon. Jones shot 95% from the free throw line on 18-19 shooting and 57% from the field in another stellar performance. The game was a back and forth contest the entire game with 10 lead changes and 9 ties that started with the score being tied 16 all at the end of the first quarter.

     White Station led majority of the first half after Melrose being patient on offense scored first but the Spartans started the game with a 8-0 run after Melrose scored.  Adonis Thomas shot extremely well 47% from the field and snatched a game high 13 rebounds to go along with 19 points in a double double performance. Melrose finally took the lead in the second quarter with a 1 minute left using full court pressure that rattled the Spartans a little. Melrose went into the break up 35-33. White Station was killing Melrose on the boards (19-10 first half advantage) due to Melrose big man and Northern Illinois signee Nate Rucker breaking his ankle in the previous quarterfinal game against Bearden. Melrose caused 11 first half turnovers but controlled the ball to only commit 3 turnovers to nullify the rebounding disadvantage. Melrose had a 5-2 ratio on steals at the break also.

     White Station usually brings a nice crowd with them every year but Melrose's Orange Mound was definitely in the house as the Golden Wildcats were in force new and old. The Wildcats extended their lead as high as 8 points in the third quarter at the 2:01 mark of the third with Coach Jesus Patino of White Station trying to find a solution to his team poor offense with multiple substituting to gain momentum to no avail. Melrose closed the third quarter up 55-50 and in solid control for the time being.

     You know having Mr. Basketball, McDonald's All American and Memphis signee Joe Jackson (22 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists, and 2 steals) was not going to let that happen just laying there. He is a warrior and showed why he received all the postseason accolades, Jackson sat out only 6 seconds of the entire game in the fourth quarter at the 5:00 minute mark after picking up his 4th foul. Another senior who has been their since the first day with Jackson is Missouri State football signee Julian Burton (12 points on 50% shooting and 3-3 from long range). White Station William Woodfork and Rodriguez Tucker notched important minutes and played strong coming off the bench in supporting roles. White Station tried to rally by getting the score down to 3 points (63-60) and the closest they would ever get with each time  Jones snubbing out the effort and with Thomas in the wing.

Key Points of The Game: White Station Andre Hollins and Nino Johnson scoring only 4 points each. At least Johnson grabbed 10 rebounds in the cause respectively. Chris Jones awesome free throw shooting down the stretch and the entire game.
