Lookout Memphis! Sophomore forward Pierre Niles is filling out his body. Now, because of it he'll likely project as a power forward but he'll be one skilled monster down low, that's for sure. .. Speaking of Memphis, they've got a senior guard named Courtney Pilgrim who is a 3-point ace. Pilgrim is young for his age and might do a tour at a prep school. …

We said it the last time we saw them but it bears repeating. Mean Streets is the hardest playing team on the circuit. Collectively, those guys get after it on defense and that's why they're good. Others have more talent but few bring as much heart as a unit. …

Chad Millard hit the game-winning shot for Blessed IJN against H-Squad. …
