The Memphis YOMCA without a doubt had what everyone would call a very fine summer.
Winners of the Real Deal in April runner-up for the EYBL Peach Jam and the 17 and under AAU Nationals, the YOMCA continues to be one of the elite programs in the country.
Martavious Newby (BTW) was the catalyst for much of this success. A strong and powerful guard who can score from the outside or in transition, Newby played his best in the big games and for his efforts will play in the SEC next season with the Rebels of Ole Miss.
Newby is a killer defender with strength and size, he plays with passion and determination and has a strong will to win. He is a player who coaches refer to as a guy who does what it takes and helps you win championships. Simple as that.
Newby becomes the fifth member of the Class of 2012 to pledge D1.
