Division II
 Class AA - West Region
Record: 24-7 (9-1)
      Principal Chris Fay      Shelby County
5900 Walnut Grove Road
Memphis, TN 38120











      CBHS 2009-2010                                                      

     Memphis State alumni Coach Bubba Luckett in his 27th year of coaching  for the Purple Wave supposedly in a rebuilding year has surprised team counterparts. The loss of Drew Barnham (Memphis) will be hard to replace but Coach Luckett states that this team plays very solid defense that will surprise many teams. Senior Frankie Bougher (6'3 - 190 lbs., diamond in the rough) an excellent outside shooter from all over the court and very athletic with his thundering dunks leads a young squad. Another senior and Coach Luckett tells Hoopers staff, "he would not trade Dominic Fraegler (5'9 - 175 lbs., diamond in the rough) for no other guard in the city". Solid point guard with all the skills from court vision, breaking any press in front of him, toughness, the whole package.

     CBHS played Germantown on Dec. 14, 2009 in front of a packed house and the fans were in for a treat with Drew Barham and some of his Memphis teammates visiting the game. Not planned, all in attendance had a awesome halftime showing with some fun at dunks and Barham hitting a shot 5 rows in the stands that made the crowd go crazy. Just shows how Memphis really loves basketball and how Memphis Coach Pastner has brought back to the community the fun, love and involvement like back in the days.

    Purple Wave Classic has turned into a reputable nationwide high school holiday tournament. Past tournament participants have numerous kids in Division 1 programs and this year CBHS will not host a Christmas Tournament but instead will go on the road and participate in the Citizens First Holiday Classic in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Their first game will be against the host school Bowling Green which features nationally ranked Shane Behanan.

    Junior Chris Deanes  (5'10 - 165 lbs., diamond in the rough) who is a great young athlete and plays on the ball defense as good as anyone in the city. Another junior Mark Hampton (6'3 - 180 lbs., diamond in the rough) has great hands and will contribute accordingly.    

College Coaches: Diamond in the Rough Team with legitimate off the radar prospects, (college coaches click here).

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
