Reebok Big Time Tournament










       BARTLETT 2009-2010                                                      

     With enrollment down from usual numbers, second year Coach David Owen has put together a solid AAA foe that can beat anyone in the city on any given night but can they advance in the crowded AAA postseason scene. One of the best sophomore classes in the city led by Athlon Bell (6'3 - 180 lbs. diamond in the rough) with his knowledge of the game combined with his athleticism he will be a player to look out for in the near future. Teammate sophomore Marquarius Boddie (6'1 - 1800 lbs. diamond in the rough) strong overall playmaking skills and aggressive play makes him a special player. Point guard Jeffrey Dockett (5'10 - 165 lbs. diamond in the rough) will play the position running the team with his good passing and ball handling skills. Junior Wale Akinbobola (6'5 - 195 lbs. diamond in the rough) inside play and rebounding will factor in many games.

     The Panthers traveled to Carbondale, Illinois for the 47th Annual Carbondale Holiday Tournament and came away champions. One of the oldest tournaments in the country that has produced many Division 1 players turned a lot of heads with Bartlett winning. A very young and strong sophomore nucleus class you will definitely hear from these Panthers again. Remember in 2000 when they came out of nowhere and won the whole thing.

     Seniors Austin Boyd (6'2 - 185 lbs. diamond in the rough), , and Jeffrey Dockett (5'10 - 165 lbs. diamond in the rough) Deonta Whitmore (6'4 - 225 lbs. diamond in the rough) with notch valuable minutes throughout the season and contribute accordingly.

Recap 8-25-2005


It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. I think there is a book that starts off that way, but I digress.

The anticipation of the upcoming AAU or summer campaign was alive and kicking all over the country in May of 2005, especially in Memphis.

The expectations seemed enormous, having finished second in the 17 and under nationals last season as 16's the Memphis YOMCA seemed primed for the ultimate run.

Something happened on the way to the gym.

It was apparent the Bluff City faithful were not the only parties interested in getting a piece of the star studded squad.

Adidas wanted to get a foothold in the ever burgeoning Memphis hoop scene and this seemed to be the initial move to start this particular ball

So the YOMCA was no longer in the loop and the Memphis Pump-N-Run were officially born.

Taking a peek at the roster one could not blame Adidas for their bold move. Thaddeus Young, Willie Kemp, Wayne Chism, Pierre Niles and Brandon Powell made up a nucleus that would surely lead Team Memphis to the promised land.

The summer campaign started with a most interesting scenario as the "PNR" lost a game to the Mid-State Ballerz, who ironically had Willie Kemp running the show. This was an illusion that would soon change, as Kemp
shortly thereafter joined the PNR.

With all their ducks in a row, the PNR set out to establish themselves and put a benchmark on the national attention that would follow.

The Real Deal on the Hill, the first major tournament of the summer that coaches could attend. The pundits pined for the impending matchup between Team Memphis and the defending mythical goliath The Indy Spiece Heat. The Heat were led by the consensus top player in the class Greg Oden and numerous other high level prospects who could actually match the
PNR with name recognition.

The reputation was established and the aura of the PNR was created as the boys from Memphis soundly defeated the Heat and made a huge cry across the land as the best summer squad in existence.

Another funny thing happened on the way to their future endeavors, nothing.

For some inexplicable reason the PNR did not suit up for any of the Memorial Day festivities and was sparsely seen until the Adidas Super 64 in Atlanta, following the shoe camps.

The aforementioned players participated in various high level exposure camps and the three major shoe camps and kept their names on the tongues of coaches nationwide.

After achieving individual success at these various camps, the boys got back together with the purpose of putting the finishing touches on a grand and final run through the top programs the country had to offer. They added Ridgeway jumping jack Ernest Fields and ECS powerhouse Tim Johnson to the fold and things looked bright.

Once again a funny thing happened on the way to the gym.

The time off and the lack of continuity played havoc on the chemistry of the PNR and they bowed out early in Atlanta.

Heading to Las Vegas for the final big time event of the summer, the PNR seemed poised and ready to achieve. After dominating pool play the lack of chemistry once again reared it's ugly head and some resentment among the players seemed to end this summer campaign on a sour note.

This team had the potential to be one of the best of all time. It is truly unclear what precipitated these events that grounded this team for much of the latter portion of May and June, but it truly had it's effect on their success.

None the less these kids are part of the best class of seniors to dot the Tennessee landscape in many years.

The decision to completely disassociate themselves with the
organization that they grew up playing for in retrospect now seems like a mistake. The YOMCA will continue on with quality younger teams and what to make of the Adidas affiliation with the Bluff City at this juncture is
