     Coach Shane Cisco comes from a family of coaches and all have been very successful in their tenures. Coach Cisco has a team that is very special and will be a definite face at the State in Murfreesboro in March. Here it is in mid  January and they are undefeated and that alone is a feat itself. Mr. Basketball A on your squad M.J. Brown and one of the best point guards in the state hands down. Plus M.J. they are a senior laden team that has been playing together for the last 5 to 6 years; high school and summer circuit. This group of kids is shooting over 40% from the 3 point arc. They have 5 kids that have hit over 20 3's apiece. Yeah this group can shoot the ball.

     Senior M.J. Brown (6'1 - 180 lbs. diamond in the rough) will lead the way with his awesome court vision, outside shooting and drive potential. This is a team with a bunch of kids that are all about the same size and weight but play defense as good as any team in the country. Seniors Andie Coby (6'2 - 175 lbs. diamond in the rough), Lavan Mosley (5'10 - 160 lbs. diamond in the rough), and big man Nik Brooks (6'4 - 170 lbs. diamond in the rough). Defensive stopper Pat Polk (6'0 - 180 lbs. diamond in the rough) will handle all offensive takers.

    Juniors Ryan Simpson (5'10 - 215 lbs.) and B.J. Marshall (6'2 - 155 lbs.) will add valuable minutes to a team that rotates it's lineup near to perfection. Holiday trip to Poplar Bluff will battle test them for the postseason. Whoever plays them better come ready to play some ball. They average 35-40 3's a game so get ready for a barnburner.

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
