TSSAA State Championship Breakdown:  With a sweep in sight in Division A, AA, and AAA Memphis BTW loses to defending state champions Lake County on 15-30 from the free throw line and a Hail Mary shot to send the game into overtime, how free throws come back and haunt you.  Memphis East wins by one over host school Murfreesboro. Memphis Central trounces Olewatah handily. Mitchell forces a matchup with defending state champions Liberty Tech in the final four.

Recap 3-05-2012

Postseason Action Breakdown:  Memphis BTW defeats Humboldt to keep rolling in postseason action. Memphis East out rebounds Bartlett 20 - 9 in first half to build a double digit lead  and coast to a solid victory for their first state appearance since 1996. Memphis Central with all the chaos in the offseason shrugs it off and advances for the first time since Jimmy Adams was at the helm, Coach Applewhite has these kids playing the best ball of the season and Andre Applewhite should of been a Mr. Basketball candidate regardless if TSSAA didn't nominate him. One more thing they were not even ranked all season until this past week by the Hoopers staff and we will be the first to say they did big boy things over there to overcome and mature big time.  Mitchell after a 4 year hiatus returns to state with impressive wins down the stretch and the Most Improved Team of the year after just winning 2 games last year and winning over 20 clips this year, mmmm I wonder whose to blame, point the finger or bottom line just %(*&^ up!!!!!

Hoopers Top Ten stayed the same pretty much with CBHS and Briarcrest changing spots. Trezevant entering the poll for the first time in Hoopers history since 1999. Ridgeway kept the number 1 slot and teams are very precautious in their scheduling this year.

Area News 12-14-11:               Overton upends Craigmont 73-69 and at one time had over a 25 point lead in the second quarter. Craigmont didn't look like a ball club that will advance far in postseason action.

By Staff Writer Harold Rivera


Recap 12-14-2011

Area surprise teams are Trezevant with the leading scorer in the city in Tyrone Wootten, this kid is smooth on offense and hard nose young man. CBHS with Coach Luckett doing what he does every year in and year out. have these young men believe in his system hands down. The purple wave snuck by me this year because the Hoopers staff usually has them on the radar but for whatever reason they are for real.

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 triedabcdreebok.jpg (4843 bytes) 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.
