EAST 2018 - 2019 

East 2018-2019

   For the fourth year in a row and a MemphisHoopers.com record, East Mustangs are the unanimous Preseason Top Ten No. 1 coming out the gates "Ten Fold". With three straight Division AAA TSSAA State Championships in a row handily to go along with another six championships to make nine TSSAA Gold overall for this iconic Memphis high school. They are definitely in prime position for a fourth straight title run to make it "10". Former East head coach and local living legend Anfernee 'Penny' Hardaway has taken the head coaching position at his alma mater 'University of Memphis' after notching a three year stint making big boy nationwide noise and what Memphis Basketball Flat Footed Needed!!!

   The East Mustangs are coached by Jevonte Holmes and Rocky Johnson who both were Penny assistants all three years, with Holmes being elevated to running the team on day to day activities and functions. Holmes comes from a strong Memphis coaching legend in Jimmy Adams at Raleigh Egypt from 2005-2009. With the espn No. 1 player in the country James Wiseman already committed to the University of Memphis and a first as for final No. 1 committing to the Tigers overall who will be a for sure McDonald's All American. 

James Wiseman

     Senior James Wiseman (7'0 - 225 lbs., espn #1, Memphis commit) one of the top premier players in the nation and also a candidate for many national accolades will lead this relatively young ball club but definitely experienced with several seasoned seniors and a lock for No. 1 in coming nationwide polls. Coach Holmes said. Wiseman post game has improved tremendously over the summer to go along with his scoring from all over the court in strong fashion including his long range shooting. His overall stat intangibles he does in every game have been underrated as he makes all teammates game ready better.

Malcolm Dandridge   

    Another top senior Malcolm Dandridge (6'7 - 230 lbs., 24/7 #135, Memphis commit) one of the most solid power forwards in the region that possesses a man child body with an overall toughness on both sides of the basketball. Dandridge runs the floor for his strong size very hard at all times and displays great overall court vision while also being one of the top defenders on the basketball team via all opponents with an improved offensive inside game.

     Dee Merriweather (6'0 - 160 lbs.) has one of the best shots in the city with unlimited range all over the court, Coach Holmes has stated many times before, Merriweather in any presented situation before him displays playmaking ability notching solid results especially from long range as being a proven knock down shooter 'Ten Fold".  Senior Antonio Thomas (6'0 - 170 lbs.) the most athletic defender all over the court on the basketball club with good range on his jump shot and a floor general while being a strong team leader at the same time.

    Fifth senior on the history making mustangs is Nathan Hallowell (6'1 - 215 lbs.) is the heart and soul of this basketball team as Coach Holmes stated. Also is a lock down defender and the best perimeter defender not only on the team but in the city. Sophomore Jadarius Jacobs (6'2 - 180 lbs.) is another high energy player who had a break out summer and  probably the most improved player in the city. Junior Isiah Cathey (6'2 - 180 lbs.) will get plenty of minutes and another good shooter off the bench. Freshman Marquis Washington (6'5 - 185 lbs.) comes from a long line of brothers that have attended East. Washington is long, athletic, and brings dynamic play when he enters the ball game and a top freshman in the city where coaches need to keep an eye on this young man.


Marquis Washington

      East Mustangs will start off the season with a Hall of Fame Game against Mitchell @ Mitchell. They play Olive Branch, Prolific Prep, Holy Innocents out of Atlanta during the month of December before they end the month at the prestigious Chic Fil A Christmas Tournament in Columbia, South Carolina. In January they will attend another nationwide top tournament in Springfield, Missouri in the National Bass Pro Classic
