One of the nations top gridiron stars is not half bad on the hardwood.

Marlon Brown (Harding Academy) scored 23 points and helped lead the Memphis YOMCA past Team Melo 76-63 in the morning game at the Peach Jam.

Brown was spectacular with tough drives to the hoop, baseline jumpers and tough putbacks on the offensive glass.

Joining Brown in the scoring column rising sophomore sensation Chris Jones (Melrose) and Ian Clark (Germantown) finished with 11 apiece. Ferrakohn Hall (White Station) added 10.

Not to be upstaged by big brother the YOMCA Memphis Bulldogs dominated the court lassoing Team Texas 69-43 in the 16 and under division.

Darrian Gray (Wooddale) led the scoring with 14 including a couple threes. Robert Schaeffer (Sheffield) was the only other Bulldog is double digits.

Action gets back underway tomorrow.
