     Last time Hoopers staff wrote a team bio on the Bears was in 2006 when Arnette Moultrie (6'8 - 225 lbs., rivals #) was at the school before he headed to Raleigh Egypt for his senior year. Moultrie got drafted by the 76ers in the first round of the recent 2012 NBA Draft. The Bears are back with a senior laden team and should make some serious noise in Division AA on the north section and definitely state aspirations on the horizon.

    Coach Rodney Tooles will battle Manassas for 15 - AA title. Senior Tyrone Wooten (6'3 - 175 lbs., rivals #) the reigning top leading scorer in the city from last year and looking to repeat the feat since Joe Jackson of White Station did in 2008. Tyrone Wooten high offensive game includes nifty slashes to the goal with great open court vision. Wooten range is consistent from all over the court with mid range and from the  arc. Tadarius Neely (6'5 - 195 lbs., rivals #) had a very solid summer playing with The Phenoms. Neely's left hand moves are as strong as anyone in the city to go along with some great rebounding from both sides of the court.

    Another senior that will contribute tremendously is Dwight Waddell (6'4 - 185 lbs., rivals #) in the paint. The Bears should hold their own with rebounding a plus even though no big  presence. At the guard spots they will be run by two other seniors in Chris Sims (6'0 - 165 lbs., rivals #) solid point guard play to go along with defensive stalemate in Lamarcus Stewart (6'1 - 165 lbs., rivals #)will bring toughness to the 1 and 2 spots respectively.

     The Bears will participate in the annual Martin Luther King Tournament at Melrose High School during the Thanksgiving Holidays. They will also attend the Hughes Classic in Hughes, Arkansas right after Thanksgiving break.

     Sophomores that will garner valuable minutes throughout the entire season will be  P'Angelo Harris (6'1 - 165 lbs., rivals #). and DeAngelo Stewart (6'1 - 165 lbs., rivals #) and contribute extensively.

Recap 8-25-2005

BY : ANDRE WHITEHEAD OF TENNESSEE PREP HOOPS

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
rolling.

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
unclear.
