So you think you can hoop?    Show Me they would say in Missouri.

The Tennessee Travelers will compete in the Show Me Invitational in St. Louis this weekend.

In the 17 and under division the Travs will tangle with one of the nation's top teams, Athletes First; as well as, other tough squads. The 17's will be led by the Fulton duo of James Gallman and Jalen Steele. Both young men fresh off the state tourney title are playing with ultra confidence and are seemingly the talk of the town. Another Knoxville product Joe Meady (Carter) turned some heads a few weeks ago with his effort and all eyes will be upon him to duplicate that effort.

Another underclassman making some noise for the Travs is 6'5 rising junior Robert wade (Maplewood). His athleticism is shining through and people have begun to take notice.


Down in the 16's the Travs will be led by Brandon Herman (Grace Baptist). The 5'10 rising junior is playing very consistent ball and turning many heads with his play on both ends of the floor. Also expected to have big weekends Tyler Hood (Lenoir City), D'Angelo Williams (Spring Hill) and Fred Sturdivant (Brainerd).
