Keeping up with Pastner as his recruiting trail continues


Coach Josh Pastner for the Memphis Tigers spent Saturday in St. Charles Mo., scoping out prospects at the Mullen High Profile tournament for high school players and the Mullens Top 100 camp for JUCO players.

At the high school tournament, Pastner watched D’Angelo Allen, a 6-6 forward from Dallas, TX.

The JUCO camp displayed some of Pastner’s bigger targets for the class of 2014. He evaluated Chipola Fla., forward Cinmeon Bowers and Odessa Texas guard Josh Gray. Pastner also checked out Lipscomb transfer and Northwest Florida State center Stephen Hurt.

Update on the Peach Jam

Team Penny continues their winning ways as they defeated New York-based Team Scan by the final score of 67-66. Memphis targets’ K.J. and Dedric Lawson combined to score 27 points to place Team Penny into the tournament’s Final Four.

Team Penny caught a break because Spiece Indy Heat was upset by New York Lightning to avoid elimination. The win by New York allowed Team Penny to play in Saturday night’s quarterfinals.

Team Penny (4-2) will play Each1Teach1 Elite in Sunday’s 9:30 CT semifinal. The winner of this game will advance to Nike’s 17U national championship game, which will kick off at 2 p.m. CT on Sunday.

White Station senior guard Davell Roby had eight points, five rebounds, and two assists for Team Penny in the quarterfinal win.
