Memphis Joe Jackson Tarik

Memphis

Joe Jackson
Tarik Black
Chris Crawford
Adonis Thomas
Andre Hollins
Austin Hollins

Also, Todd Mayo is a bench player for Marquette. He and Austin Hollins went to the same high school I did (Germantown High School) but I went there a decade earlier.

Ole Miss has a former top Memphis high school player. But he is a deep bench guy this year.

^^^ I wish the Tigers could

^^^

I wish the Tigers could have signed Andre Hollins. He is something else. Great guy too. He actually played with Joe Jackson at White Station High (JJ graduated one year earlier than Andre). He is teaming up with Austin Hollins for a tough Minnesota team. Austin and Andre are not related, but Austin Hollins is Coach Lionel Hollins (Memphis Grizzlies) son.

For as crappy as high school basketball is in Maine it is nice to have one decent player from here in the NCAA tournament

India baby! Sim Bhullar is a

India baby! Sim Bhullar is a 7'5 freshman big for New Mexico, and had 4 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 blocks. I know it doesn't seem like much but this is a BIG direction in the right step.

As for where I grew/growing up, I Will Cherry's from the Bay Area, and Cal also got a HUGE win today, did not expect them to win today.
